Furtherfield on Resonance FM update

Update on Furtherfield’s broadcasts on Resonance FM.

We have finished an extremely enjoyable, informative and challengiing season of broadcasts on Resonance FM, and are now having a break until September 2010.

But, don’t expect us to slacken our passion in connecting with others. During this break-time, we will be recording interviews and preparing new programmes. In fact, we’ve already started.

The first season has already produced a rich and accessible archive (for download) of intelligent, ‘live’ radio based conversations and debate around Art, Technology and Social Change. Offering a valuable resource for all who are interested in furthering their knowledge of the wider context of a thriving media arts culture and varied related practices. We aim to change art and culture, by making the creative noise that we are proudly part of more visible to a larger audience, whilst maintaining its critical contexts at the same time.


Guests featured on the Programmes so far are:

Danja Vasiliev – computer artist, hacker.
James Wallbank & Steve Withington – Access Space.
Lottie Child – founder of Street Training.
Dougald Hine & Pete Gravell – Space Makers Agency.

This regular live show highlights current activity and controversies around contemporary practices in art, technology and social change, discussing events, exhibitions, debates and their social contexts with all manner of player and participant. Features include lively debate and interviews with artists, techies, writers and curators, interspersed with bleeding-edge music, some from Furthernoise.org, and a rolling programme of experimental creative adventures for your amusement.

This programme is part of ‘Hyperlink: Media Art Contexts’ whose principal aim is to present and promote high-quality contemporary media art work, alongside critical discussion of past, present and future media art in a contemporary art context.
