Radio That Matters - Européen project

Radio That Matter, a new project led by AREA06 - Short Theater in Rome, proposes to create a research and experimentation space for European structures and festivals in the field of sound creation linked to live performance. It is about producing with artists, radio stations and associations working in particular with visually impaired people, innovative artistic forms which allow the experience of the festival time and content for all.

Radio That Matters news: 
[January 2024]
On 20 December 2023, the first meeting took place between the Parallèle team, members of the ASLAA association (Association Sports et Loisirs des Aveugles et Amblyopes) and Elena Biserna, a researcher and curator involved in the project alongside us.  On the programme: a presentation of our respective structures and their challenges, the Radio That Matters project and the way in which we hope to work together. 
We're going to be each other's companions for over a year, sharing our artistic experiences and thoughts, and working together to design a special edition of the festival based on sound creation and making artistic projects accessible to everyone. Our aims: the inclusion of people with disabilities and the exploration of new artistic formats. 
The partnership begins with the next edition, with meetings with the artists, practical workshops and specific preparation for some of the festival's performances. 
Radio *Duuu will soon be joining us in the adventure!

Radio Papesse – Associate Partner of Radio That Matters – and LUCIA support the creation of authors, new voices and innovative productions that play with and around the limits and rules of radio production and podcasting.
