AMARC Europe Newsletter 10/2019

Aujourd'hui, 21 Octobre, Community Radios celebrate theInternational Feminist Radioday 2019
Today isInternational Feminist Radioday”! Le “International Feminist Radiodaytoday will feature over 24 hours of feminist content from over 12 editorial teams in 3 german-speaking countries. The broadcasts will include content against the patriarchy with feminist music, entretiens, histoires, features, shows and discussions.

Why do we need a feminist radioday?

According to a study by the ZHAW less than 39% of the people who shape what we listen and see in Switzerland are women. ProQuote claims that only 2 de 12 public radio stations are directed by women. In these statistics people who identify as trans*, inter or non-binary are not even visible. Chief editors are usually male, the images of women and girls in media are full of clichés, many journalists suffer from sexual assaults at their workplace, topics are distributed according to gender rolesthe list of reasons to focus on feminist media coverage is long. Community radios are non-commercial, open and self-determined and have therefore functioned as platform for those, who’s voices are often not heard. The working conditions for women, inter, non-binary and trans are therefore less harsh than in mainstream media. Nonetheless patriarchal power-structures are also present in our field of work. It is mostly male voices which we hear, also in community radio. In 2017 many editorial teams met for the feminist radio eventClaim the Wavesin Zurich. They decided to network and annually claim the airwaves together on the 21st of October. Feminist journalism means to these editorial teams, that they broadcast their own views, la musique, topics and listen to people and stories which are usually ignored.

Austrian Community Media reflecting on Future of Community Media
Enough with media crisis!
New impulses on journalistic engagement and public participation
by Martin Wassermair (Head of the Political Desk at Dorf TV in Linz/Austria)

Don’t look back in anger! That could be the slogan of the Upper Austrian non-commercial broadcasting scene after one and a half years of a right-wing populist government and its demolition of the welfare system and of general trust in politics and media. But what does the current crisis of journalism really mean? How can community radios and TV stations fulfill the dissident role of independent critical voices? Which structural preconditions do they need?

In spring 2019, an informal network of Dorf TV, Radio FRO, Freies Radio Salzkammergut, Freies Radio B138 and Freies Radio Freistadt decided to publish the common journalLand of Free Media”, focusing on important discourses of the current change of media and on ideas and demands to approve the framework requirements. In light of about 20 years of existence in Austria, there is no doubt that the sector of non-commercial broadcasters has to be considered a meaningful contributor to democracy, justice and societal integration. En outre, the development of Social Media, fake news and the life in filter bubbles has created new forms of intransparent power and threats. But which conclusions do free media draw from politics of fear and the capitalistic monitoring of social spheres in our digital age?
 
 

Community media, which by definition are close to their audiences, serve many societal needs and perform functions that neither commercial nor public service media can meet or undertake adequately. Though, the Upper AustrianLand of Free Mediais highlighting the most important questions and tries to find some appropriate answers, hoping that non-commercials radios and TV stations will contest the so-called democracy of outrage by raising awareness for more public participation and ensuring a self-confident and diverse media landscape.

AMARC à la Conférence de recherche Radio ECREA 2019

L'AMARC a rejoint le 6e Conférence de la Section de la recherche radio de l'Association européenne de recherche, d'enseignement et de communication (ECRE), qui a eu lieu dans le cadre magnifique de l'Université de Sienne (Italie), en septembre 19-21.

Plusieurs des discours intéressants et des morceaux de recherche ont été présentés, mettant en évidence la variété et la vivacité du secteur de la radio à travers l'Europe et au-delà. Le premier discours d'ouverture a été tenu par David Fernandez Quijada, Responsable du Media Intelligence Service, l'unité d'études de marché de l'Union européenne de radio-télévision (UER). Il a fourni quelques données intéressantes sur la situation de la radio en Europe. Dans la zone UER, Il y a plus que 12 mille stations de radio. Autour de la 90% de ce groupe est composé de stations FM analogiques, et les numériques sont, en ce moment, juste à propos de 15 cent (une grande majorité d'entre eux sont des stations DAB +). La plupart des stations européennes sont nationales, avec seulement 120 cas internationaux.
 
Passer aux habitudes de consommation radio, Fernandez Quijada a déclaré qu'en 2018, Des citoyens européens écoutent la radio, en moyenne, 2 heures et 22 minutes par jour: ceux-ci sont 4 minutes de moins que l'année précédente et 14 minutes de moins 5 années avant (2013). Les gens utilisent toujours ce média, mais le temps passé dessus a diminué. Cette tendance est également plus évidente chez les jeunes européens: dans 2018 ils ont écouté, en moyenne, 1 heure et 26 minutes par jour de radio: 5 minutes de moins que l'année précédente et 20 minutes de moins 5 il y a des années. Les citoyens européens contactés chaque semaine par radio sont toujours un grand groupe, le 84% (ce qui correspond à 420 millions d'auditeurs), mais aussi, dans ce cas, il y a une réduction (-1.7%) par rapport à 2013.

Il est intéressant de savoir que la radio est considérée comme le média le plus fiable dans la majorité des pays européens, à la différence de la Hongrie, La Serbie et la Grèce qui ont mis Internet au premier plan, tandis que le Monténégro, Albanie, Macédoine, La Bulgarie et la Turquie ont choisi la télévision.

En outre, AMARC Europe a présenté un document en collaboration avec d'autres partenaires dans le cadre du projet Grassroots Radio. Le papier, intitulé «Favoriser la radio communautaire: le projet Grassroots Radio », discute des activités et des défis de la conception conjointe de radios communautaires dans les zones rurales.

Civil Radio won’t stay silent!”
Community Radio in Budapest

Last week the Budapest based community radio Civil Radio(Hongrie) received the negative decision of the Hungarian Media Council on their re-application of their broadcasting licence.

In a first statement Civil Radio reacts to the decision of the Media Council.

Our voice is the same, et nous ne voulons pas être réduits au silence. We will be expelled to the internet, but we will not give up the possibility to broadcast also in the air. After December 21, 2019, our programmes can be listened to solely online. We do our best to preserve the uniqueness of our sound and develop the media platforms, through which our listeners can surely reach us.

Due to the resolution of the Media Council the last time Civil Radio will be heard on the frequency 98.0 MHz in Budapest is December 21, 2019. Their decision was made on the basis of minor malfunctions of the radio, without taking into consideration the spirit and values represented by our radio. This action in an already shrinking independent media space is particularly painful.

AMARC ALC demands Implementation of Fund for Community Radios in Honduras

The World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters in Latin America and the Caribbean (AMARC ALC) issues a statement with demand to create the Social Responsibility Fund already established in current legislation, to strengthen and guarantee a diverse and plural media system in Honduras.
 
AMARC ALC points out that the regulation of the National Telecommunications Commission (CONATEL) that allows non-profit media to access funds to operate broadcasting frequencies establishes the creation of the Social Responsibility Fund to strengthen this sector. Cependant, it has not yet been implemented.

AMARC Europe as part of the conference “Radio Activists – Open, Independent and Critical?"

À partir de 18 – 21 September Radio CORAX (Halle in Germany) invites to a conference to discuss the practices and experiences of free and community radio initiatives around Europe and beyond.

The conference organisers state “free radios – also known as community media – are a type of media from below, working independently, non-commercial and self-organised. That it’s necessary to talk about our practices and experiences has maybe to reasons: On the one hand, the media landscape is touched by effects of disintegration, rules of market and solitariness. D'autre part, in many European countries right-wing movements become stronger and predict to reduce the space of critical, left-wing, liberal media. We want to talk about the history and present of the free radio movement, with the aim of exchange and networking.”

AMARC Europe will be a discussion partner in the panel “Under PressureFree Radios in Hungary, Austria and Slovenia” on Friday 20 Septembre 2019 à 19.00. The panel will focus on the impact of right-wing policies on press freedom and the spaces for independent media work. The discussions partners will be
Martin Wassermair (Head of politics desk at Dorf TV in Linz/Austria)
A representative of Radio Student from Ljubljana/Slovenia
Ákos Cserháti (Executive Director of Civil Radio in Budapest/Hungary)
Michael Nicolai (President AMARC Europe in Brussels/Belgium)

Grassroots Radio Third General Assembly: It’s a Wrap!

AMARC with Deutsche Welle Akademie to support freedom of expression in Senegal

In the framework of the analysis of potential new priority countries of the DWA for the promotion of freedom of expression, with the support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), AMARC was engaged as an external consultant to identify the possible axes of intervention in Senegal.
En effet, the development of the media scene during the last thirty years has witnessed the development of all kind of media. The audiovisual legislation have been adopted and creates an enabling environment for the public, commercial and community audiovisual sector. D'autre part, the multiplication of media does not represent today a multiplication of points of view and diversity. Many questionings are raised on the ability of citizens to interpret information in a system strongly polarized by political and commercial interests.
The great digital boom of Senegal represents an opportunity and a danger. An opportunity in order to find innovative solutions and promote dialogue between citizens, media and public institutions, but also a danger that opens the door to the dissemination of fake news, in especially among the less educated layers of the society. What skills are lacking to citizens for critical use of media? And what skills do journalists lack in this changing environment?

With the DWA, AMARC is engaged in a process of research and ground mission that should lead to the development of new projects. Restez à l'écoute!
 

AMARC to join the ECREA Radio Research Conference 2019

AMARC will take part to the next conference of the Radio Research Section of ECREA, which will be held at the Department of Social, Political and Cognitive Sciences of the University of Siena (Italie), à partir de 19 à 21 Septembre 2019. Le 2019 theme is: Radio as a Social/Convivial Media: communauté, participation, public values in the platform society.

Phyllis Sciannamblo (former M-ITI, currently AMARC) will attend the conference as one of the authors of the paper titled “Fostering Community Radio: le projet Grassroots Radio », which will discuss the articulation of the Grassroots Radio project with the co-design activities it entails. Here is the abstract of the paper:

Nowadays media management is increasingly a global phenomenon, subject to the dynamics of the platform society, plagued by a drop in independence, inclusiveness and pluralism. An attempt to resist this trend can derive from the inclusion of local communities in the governance of analogous broadcasting, as witnessed by the experience of community radio stations. En outre, the involvement of the communities also in the design of the technologies that allow them to access this media can foster the radio to become more and more a social/convivial tool. Dans ce contexte,, the Grassroots Radio project stands as a participatory design process aimed at the development and testing of an ICT technology for the creation of a network of FM community radio stations with geographical communities in Ireland, Portugal and Romania. A web platform allows the setting-up of FM radio stations, avoiding the costs of a real studio and expensive equipment: just a basic phone and a low-cost antenna are necessary. We will describe how digital technology can be used to support the existence of an inclusive and literacy-independent “old-school” social media. We will show that this can be possible through the co-design of a platform aimed at fostering cooperativism, citizen engagement, délibération communautaire, media pluralism and the free flow of information in local contexts. We will highlight how the intersection between new digital technologies and old analogue ones creates frictions within the institutional frameworks that regulate these dynamics, lequel, à son tour, influence the definition of the communities and the design of the technologies themselves.

Grassroots Wavelength Project: Grassroots Radio on the right wavelength

Grassroots Radio is growing and advancing in the three locations of Bere Islands (Irlande), Madère (le Portugal), and in Sfantu Gheorghe and Varvoru de jos (Roumanie).

Bere Island Community Radio held their third broadcast on May 19th, broadcasting on 100.1FM locally and worldwide on the Internet.  The three-hour show was co-presented by two island women, Eileen Murphy and Angela Sullivan.  As Ireland has local and European elections on May 24th the programme featured interviews with local candidates, with particular reference to how their mandates will influence the island, and wider Beara community. Bere Island Projects Group are continuing to work with Grassroots Radio to and RootIO to test the RootIO system, and plan to broadcast using RootIO in the coming weeks.

On May 30th and June 1st we have welcomed two new community radios in Europe, with the Romanian stations of Sfantu Gheorghe and Varvoru de Jos on air on the 89.9 et 106 Mhz FM frequency, respectivement. Le RootIO technology, still in its experimenting phase, reacted very well to the diversity of inputs although local networking problems have sometimes cut the parallel internet streaming.

Meanwhile, the Grassroots Radio team in Madeira has been doing many activities in Curral das Freiras, une paroisse civile d'environ 2000 inhabitants in the centre of the island and the location of one of the project radio stations. The project team has met several people in the town, including parish, enseignants, representatives of local associations and community members while assembling the microstation and antenna on the top of the mountain to stream the transmission.

We are constantly monitoring all the activities and exchanging views on the work done in the different pilot sites. We are willing to keep up the good work along the summer and we are looking forward to the next update

Honduras: the Latin American Association of Education and Popular Communication calls for protection of Radio Progreso


ALER (Asociación Latinoamericana de Educación y Comunicación Popular – Latin American Association of Education and Popular Communication), concerned about the serious situation of social and political violence in Honduras, joins the voices of citizens who are demonstrating in the streets to call on the police and military forces to immediately cease violence and repression that exacerbate the breach of the rule of law in Honduras.
 
The military forces show disrespectful procedures and violation of human rights in the Latin American country. Dans ce contexte,, on June 24, the Association denounces the incursion of the Military Police into the National Autonomous University of Honduras, where several students were injured, 4 of them seriously by bullet shots. According to Amnesty International, in the last two weeks there have been 2 people killed, et 19 have been wounded by firearms in clashes with the public police. That is why we join the national and international organizations that condemn these events that seek to silence the voice and stop the mobilization of the Honduran people.

Honduras: Defending Human Rights with Radio

En Juin 2009 a coup d’etat overthrew Honduras’ democratically elected president Manuel Zelaya. Since the coup, human rights conditions in that country have deteriorated. Radio has become a vital organizing tool for defending the rights of indigenous people and fighting environmental destruction, while providing needed information and education to people in rural areas.

Listen to this podcast with community radio producers Meredith Beeson and Ellen Knutson to learn about what’s happening in Honduras, and the important role of radio.

New publication: Radio as Art. Concepts, Spaces, Practices

“Radio as Art Concepts, Spaces, Practices”, edited by Anne Thurmann-Jajes, Ursula Frohne, Jee-Hae Kim, Maria Peters, Franziska Rauh, Sarah Rothe, is the title of a new volume published by Transcript that investigates a broad range of aesthetic experiments with the broadcasting technology of radio.
Acoustic signals, voice, sound, articulation, music and spatial networking are dispositifs of radiophonic transmission. They have brought forth a great number of artistic practices. Up to and into the digital present radio has been – and still is – employed and explored as an apparatus-based structure as well as an (alternative) model for performance and perception. The book also sheds light on the use of radio as a means of disseminating artistic concepts, and on questions of conceptual and sociocultural matters of mediation of this art form.

ECREA Radio Research Conference 2019, Siena (Italie), Septembre 19-21, 2019 

The next conference of the Radio Research Section of ECREA will be held at the Department of Social, Political and Cognitive Sciences of the University of Siena (Italie), à partir de 19 à 21 Septembre 2019. Le 2019 theme is: Radio as a Social/Convivial Media: communauté, participation, public values in the platform society.

In the age of platformization of culture (Nieborg & Poell 2018) every media is being turned into a digital platform and every audience is being datafied and commodified. What is the role of radio within this new media ecosystem? Tim Wu (2011) showed how radio broadcasting too was eventually colonized by the ethos of profit, but along its history the radio medium has been able to partially escape its commodification and it has carved out a social role as a public service media and as a community/civic media, more open to audience interaction and participation than television and print media used to be.

In a media ecosystem increasingly shaped by algorithms, radio is the only medium that still has a relevant analogue component, especially in non-western areas of the world. The relevance of analogue broadcasting is not only a residual practice but could be also framed as a space of freedom, a practice of resistance to the process of platformization.

AMARC Europe Newsletter 06/2019

Chers membres de l'AMARC,
Dear colleagues and friends,
 
Sometimes working for Community Radio’s legal acceptance and recognition feels like Sisyphus must have felt rolling his stone uphill day after day. Last month in Germany there was the final audition for the legal framework for electronic media of Berlin-Brandenburg.
 
Representatives of the public service media, the media authority and the Community Radio sector were invited to comment on the treaty regulating the media landscape in Berlin-Brandenburg. Après 25 years of fighting for legal recognition and substantial financial funding the treaty is only mentioning Free Radios in Berlin and Brandenburg as one kind of community media to be licenced, cependant, financial funding for our sector is not mentioned. At the end the media authority is allowed to continue the neglection of the existing six free radios in Berlin-Brandenburg. We’ll see how this will impact the momentum of the radio activists who again have to campaign and wait for a changed legal framework for electronic media of Berlin-Brandenburg.
 
In moments like these it helps to see examples for success such as the result of the struggles Cuac FM in A Coruna had to go through to reach an important victory for the whole Spanish Community Radio scene. We also put a spotlight on the current situation in Austria, Honduras and much more in the current edition of the AMARC Europe newsletter. Enjoy the read.
 
Yours sincerely
 
Michael Nicolai

MORE MONEY FOR AUSTRIAN PRIVATE BROADCASTERS. HOWEVER, WHY ONLY FOR COMMERCIAL BROADCASTERS?

Sur 6 Mai 2019 le gouvernement autrichien a augmenté le financement pour le secteur des médias privés par € 5 million. Cependant, cette augmentation substantielle profitera uniquement du secteur des médias privés commerciaux - le financement du secteur des médias communautaires reste le même.

AMARC Europe addressed this issue in a statement to the Austrian Federal government (statement can be downloaded in Anglais et Allemand via the AMARC Europe website) and demanded a strong commitment to support the future development of the Austrian non-commercial broadcasting sector and “fully supports the demands of the Federation of Community Radios in Austria (VFRO – Association des Radios Libres Autriche) and calls for an increase of the fund for the promotion of non-commercial broadcasting from €3 million to €5.5 million in order to guarantee the safeguarding and expansion of non-commercial broadcasting in Austria, media diversity, low-threshold access to local media and information offerings and the mediation of critical media skills.”

Josef Seethaler, Deputy Director of the Institute for Comparative Media and Communication Studies at the Austrian Academy of Science, states in an article for the June edition of the AMARC Europe newsletter that Community Media are an essential part of democratic development in Austria and an important sphere for political participation and that “participation […] sera possible avant tout dans l'espace local: dans notre propre milieu de vie, dont les avantages et les problèmes que nous connaissons. Si nous faisons l'expérience là-bas la démocratie, nous aurons confiance en elle. Renforçons le rôle des médias non commerciaux!"

Deadline for Submission for 12th OURMedia Conference and 20th Anniversary IndyMedia on 15 Juin 2019

The Université libre de Bruxelles invites submissions for abstracts for papers and panels for the 12th OURMedia Conference to be held 26-30 November in Brussels, Belgique. The conference will be held under the general theme ‘Mediactivism – Scholactivism’. We encourage the submission of papers that focus on the (real or imagined) gap between academia and society, exploring how academic scholarship could be useful for (alternative) médias (militants) and the myriad ways in which media scholars can be committed to equality, social justice and progressive social change. The general theme ‘Mediactivism – Scholactivism’ refers to how both media practitioners and media scholars, rather than being impartial or partisan, can be ‘committed’ by actively and openly campaigning for particular ideals. As the conference will coincide with the 20th anniversary of Indymedia, we encourage the submission of papers specifically focusing on analysing its legacy, achievements, shortcomings and influence on contemporary (en ligne) media activism. The deadline for submissions has been extended to 15 Juin 2019. For more information see the conference website ici
