Radio art | Radio feature | Radio research


There are plenty of conferences devoted to 'the future of radio, but this speculative viewpoint misses real advances happening under our very noses. Radio Now seeks to examine the medium from a contemporary practitioner's perspective. With a focus on the state of the (radio) art, it brings together leading international radio creates and instigators to provide a snapshot of art, research and the feature in today's local and global radio landscapes. 

Radio Now takes the form of short, focused, illustrated presentations followed by broader group discussions. Convened by Dr Ed Baxter, Radio Now will also inaugurate a new wide-ranging critical online Radio Review site hosted by Resonance 104.4fm.
