Broadcast yourself at DVC gallery

From now until May 16, Neighborhood Public Radio will broadcast live from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the DVC Art Gallery.

Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to speak their mind, play music, sing, and perform in front of a live microphone, according to a NPR press release.

Portable radio instruments have been provided to DVC, California College of Art and community centers in the Bay Area elsewhere under a grant NPR received from the Walter Elise Haas Fund’s Cultural Commons program.

The project gives students an opportunity to have their voices heard at a national level and will be part of a larger exhibition currently taking place at the 2008 Whitney Biennial in New York.

NPR installed a broadcast point inside the Whitney Museum as part of an exhibition titled, “American Life,” that will include live talk, music, and experimental sound shows created by visitors, artist, activists, and people from the community.

Some of the programing will also be streaming 24 hours a day as part of NPR’s regular Wednesday broadcasts at FM radio to 88.9 and

NPR was founded in 2004 and is an independent, artist-run radio station.

Its motto is, “If it’s in the neighborhood and it makes noise, we hope to put it on the air.”

The radio station has become an alternative media platform for artists, activists, and members of the community.

Those who want to plan their time in front of the mic can schedule a half hour block of time on May 14 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
