Salt Institute for Documentary Studies

GroupAccount image

Salt will be celebrating it's 40th anniversary year in 2013! Students from around the world (but mostly from around the US) attend Salt for a fifteen week, intensive semester in documentary photography, writing, or radio while at the same time studying and practicing multimedia production. Please check out our website for information about the program, application process, student housing, exhibitions, events etc. Many of the pieces here have been broadcast on Maine Public Radio and Maine's community radio stations WMPG and WERU. A few have made it to National Public Radio. We hope the excellent work of our students will now find room in your broadcast schedule.

From fieldwork and recording techniques to narrative and ethics, Saltcast explored the ins-and-outs of radio production.
