The goal of this ears-on/hands-on workshop is for participants to explore radio space as a medium for making art through the creation of their own radio artwork. Along the way, participants will expand their radio art material vocabulary through the collective building of radio receivers and transmitters.

Radio v. Rectangles culminates in a group cabaret performance on the online radio platform Acoustic Mirror
