KATHARINA SMETSPRINT THIS PAGE
Katharina Smets is an independent radio producer and audio artist for theatre and the national radio in Belgium and the Netherlands. With a background in philology, philosophy and theatre, she learned how to make radio thanks to a small anarchistic free radio in her hometown near Brussels. Later she had the chance to learn about radio in London and in the US.
Katharina teaches radio documentary at the Royal Conservatoire in Antwerp and has been coaching news reporters at the national broadcast in Belgium.
She is the proud curator of In The Dark in Belgium and in the Netherlands, an organization or rather an international manifesto that strives for adventurous audio stories.
History and art are important guidelines when building her stories, but the heart of every piece is the clumsy, awkward, hesitating human voice
