The Change You Want To See Gallery is pleased to host a film series and workshop on transmission arts, sound performance, and radical radio.
Join us this Thursday for a screening of “Work Slowly – Radio Alice”, an account of an Italian pirate radio station run by the so-called “Mao-Dadaist” wing of the Autonomia movement. Then on Saturday we’ll host free103point9’s Radio Lab: Art Activism Seminar, with a screening of “A Little Bit of So Much Truth”, a film that documents the 2006 popular uprising in Oaxaca, Mexico, and the people’s takeover of 14 radio stations and 1 television station to coordinate organizing efforts. A hands-on workshop on transmitter-building will follow. Presenters include freeradio103point9, Prometheus Radio Project, and Germantown Community Farm.
