Tune in Radio Poort
This is a research project about, by and for the Brugse Poort, a neighbourhood in Gent, Belgium. Whilst strong communities exist, there are clear divisions between them. I instigated this project as a means to investigate how people live collectively and what it means to share space in a neighbourhood.
In collaboration with Lennert Janssens, we have created a mobile radio station using only locally sourced and waste materials from the Brugse Poort. We hosted a construction workshop at De Koer in April 2023, where we built the vehicle together with people from the neighbourhood.
In the coming year, we are touring the radio station around the area, collecting content for the radio shows in the form of workshops, conversations, performances and lectures before using narrowcasting for the neighbourhood to listen back.
