{almost} Free Radio Stations workshop w/ Ed Bear

{almost} Free Radio Stations
with Ed Bear

 

Saturday, November 10th

12-5pm

 

Surplus and broken electronics are made ubiquitous by a complex network of extractive, economic, and material systems that continue to have deadly ecological impacts. Both technical and social access to these systems is still well guarded by power structures with vested interest in the who and how of repair and true ownership of our devices. Unpacking this complexity with our own hands, this workshop will introduce basic electronics skills by de-obsolescing an FM radio transmitter. Participants will leave this not only with their own upcycled radio station, but the skills needed to lead this workshop on their own.
