Abstract: As Radio National pursues its online, networked media presence, it is engaging in the same media landscape as participatory cultures do, changing its relationship between the audience or uses and the broadcaster. As there is no precedent for this type of model, the ABC doesn’t know how to engage with their users, posing a problem with the formula of production. by designing, producing, and managing a participatory culture project for an ABC Radio National program in the Pool community, I will be encouraging users to engage and produce cultural artefacts for broadcast. This will provide a pilot or case study on how the ABC can interact with its audience and users.
