How to Build a Voicebox II : Pirate Radio

With the ever increasing conglomeration of the mainstream media, reducing both the quality and diversity of information communicated through various mediums as well as censor a wide range of critical thought, an individual becomes one without a voice, enclosed within a non-reactive relationship.

Every new emerging medium has the promise of democratization, as a form of wireless commons. These two workshops, led by Anthony Tran, will focus on pirate radio as a practical way to amplify voice as a way to collectively repurpose radio space for all.

The first workshop, done with a core group of twenty students, will approach pirate radio from many domains - the history and its underlying beliefs, a technical workshop on how to build individual, small pirate radio, and see its application throughout Minneapolis.
