Radia.FM Network Launch

Radia.FM Launch

The Radia Network is pleased to announce the launch of its new website!
Developed in cooperation with Radio.territories, the website evolved from
the best of Europe's artist run, free cultural, & community radios. The
site hosts information about radio praxis, projects and software.

The growing network of cultural radios consists of:
Radio Campus Bruxelles; Radio Cult, Sofia; Radio Grenouille, Marseille;
Kanal 103, Skopje; Kunstradio, Vienna; Radio Orange, Vienna;
Radioswap, Bruxelles; Reboot.fm, Berlin; Resonance104.4fm, London; Riist,
Lisbon; Tilos Radio, Budapest.

The Radia Network emerged from a series of meetings, clandestine events,
late night club discussions and a lot of email exchanges between cultural
radio producers across Europe. The topics vary and the reasons for forming
a network are many, but Radia has become a concrete manifestation of the
desire to use radio as an art form.

The approaches differ, as do the local
contexts; from commissioned radio art works to struggles for frequencies
to copyright concerns, all the radios share the goal of an audio space
where something different can happen. That different is also a form in the
making — radio sounds different in each city, on each frequency. Taking
radio as an art form, claiming that space for creative production in the
mediascape and cracking apart the notion of radio is what Radia does.


Radia.fm proudly highlights RADIO.TERRITORIES, a series of urban and
acoustic interventions taking place across Europe. Stay tuned for upcoming
calls for the artist residency programs and actions in your local European
City. From October 2005 to September 2006, various events will take place
in Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Cluj, Lisbon, Mooste, Prague, London,
Sofia and Vienna. A final conference is planned for September 2006, in
