RIBA Future Architects In Conversation Podcast - open call

Deadline: 19 May 2022

In 2021 we commissioned ten podcasts, made by young architects and architecture students for students. From tackling the climate crisis and navigating pandemic working, to lived experiences of race and space in architectural education, our hosts and special guests explored the topics that matter to the student community. You can listen to them all here.

We are commissioning a new series of podcasts for 2022. We're particularly interested in content ideas that cover the student experience, equality, diversity and inclusion, disability and neurodiversity, the climate emergency, and working in or preparing for architectural practice. Anyone can submit an idea, but we would also like to hear from student societies or special interest groups.

We are looking for a proposal from you as host of the podcast - we will need your idea for the topic, what questions will you pose, what content will you cover, and you will need to include the names of your podcast guests (you will need to secure their participation too).

You can expand on topics already covered in the first series or add something completely new. Podcasts must be a minimum of 30 mins long and no more than 60 mins.

The fee for design, creation, and hosting is £400. You don’t need any special equipment, just access to a desktop or laptop with a microphone. The audio for our podcasts can be recorded from a Microsoft Teams session. There is also a £150 honorarium available for guests (limited to three per podcast). The RIBA will edit the recording, promote, and publish the podcast.

Register your interest here.
