Our station is Internet-based and led by Experimental Communication (School of Communication) students at the Royal College of Art of London. We curate weekly showcases of music, conversation and interview, collected from both RCA students and further afield. This sonic-satellite is an opportunity to re-invigorate the public through worldwide collaboration and discussion, whilst also building bridges in a post-Brexit, mid-Covid-19 environment.
Used as a knowledge-sharing and collaborative platform, Export Radio offers a parallel space for students to reflect on WHAT they are learning about, but especially HOW they are taught at the RCA. In the context of the Work in Progress show, students felt the need to find a more humane and interactive way to share their work, their concerns regarding the institution they are studying in but also their professionalization. WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT, once we leave the RCA?
Following this thought, the team at Export Radio has put together a 24hours Livestream which will feature performances, roundtables, Q&As… It will offer students another format for visibility, getting their voices heard within and outside the ‘walls’ of the RCA.
We will be broadcasting 2 main different types of shows during this 24hours Livestream:
– individual works presentations/performances of graduates or soon to be graduates.
(these include a wide range of formats: podcasts, DJ sets, sound pieces, live workshops,…).
– roundtable discussions with groups of students/alumni/graduates from UK/EU and International Arts/Design schools (Germany, India, The Netherlands, UK,…).
These roundtables will be the occasion for graduates to share their experience of graduation life in nowadays context, reflect on the types of works that came out after 1 year in the midst of COVID 19, and what professional prospects they might have at this stage. They will be joined by alumni and students in and out of university to broaden the horizon of the reflection and inquiries. These discussions will be rather laid-back and informal, a bit like a chit chat with a cup of tea/coffee in hand!
We’re looking forward to ‘hear’ from you and meet you on our audio-visual waves!
Tune in soon!
The livestream will be hosted on Export Radio’s website : exportradio.club from 5pm on January 29th.
