ARTRADIO is Cornerhouse’s temporary radio station, broadcasting in FM and online.

Gallery 1 will be transformed into the ARTRADIO production and broadcasting studio. Open to visitors, this studio will form the base for a dynamic array of live residency broadcasts, events, pre-recorded and archive programmes, as well as invited feeds, guest slots and submitted content.

ARTRADIO will reach into people’s homes, offices, cars – wherever they listen to the radio, and offer gallery visitors a chance to listen whilst also making transparent the usually hidden mechanisms of radio, one of the most avidly followed and accessible forms of media. Resident artists will shape the core programming of the broadcast schedule, connecting along the way with other artists, projects, local audiences, and young people.

ARTRADIO residencies will appropriate conventional radio formats whilst also subverting these very models by employing their own unorthodox approaches (see menu on the left for residency details).

From Thu 26 July to Thu 9 August, ARTRADIO’s young peoples’ strand will stage a ‘takeover’ broadcast. Members of LiveWire, Cornerhouse programme for 14 –19 year olds, will work with a host of other invited young people, to lead and work in collaboration with residency artists and Unity Radio (www.unityradio.co.uk).

ARTRADIO will broadcast daily from 8.00am – midnight. (in FM for 26 days, and online for 8 weeks). Regular gallery hours apply.

Special thanks to SoundNetwork. SoundNetwork will be taking over daily as ARTRADIO broadcasts late into the night, with a special curated cross discipline programme of experimental music and sound.
