An online radio station, from which the residents of Elefsina will be able to broadcast live their own audio content, will start operating at the Old Railway Station of the city.
People aged 5 to 105 years old, collectives, initiatives, associations and groups of all kinds from Elefsina and all those interested are welcome to attend, with free participation, a series of educational workshops (radio production, audio documentary, podcast etc.), which will give them tools, knowledge and inspiration to experiment with the world of sound and create their own broadcasts in the station.
The sounds, voices and narratives that will be produced for the station will be transmitted outside in the public space, through a radio installation that will spread in Elefsina, thus creating an original radio adventure for visitors and residents.
The Voices of Elefsina, however, will travel beyond the city’s borders, making their mark stronger through broadcasts on FM radio stations and online stations in Greece and abroad.
Applications for participation until 20th of April: https://form.jotform.com/230744173519356
Our voices are heard:
The Mystery 37 Voices of Elefsina is a community-based project that focuses on broadcasting. Its aim is to create an experimental radio station that will be owned, powered and operated by the local community of Elefsina. Through a series of participatory artistic activities, experiential and interdisciplinary workshops, Voices of Elefsina encourages the development of an open space where the city’s residents can make their voices heard. The bottom-up production of radio content will illuminate and highlight different aspects of the city’s history, identity, collective memory and cultural heritage, strengthening the sense of belonging and contributing to its transition to a new era. Although local, Voices of Elefsina will travel beyond the city’s borders through collaborations – and live broadcasts – with other radio stations and networks in Greece, Europe and the world.
