Neighborhood Public Radio (NPR)

Neighborhood Public Radio is a guerilla radio broadcast group that uses portable FM transmitters to air community-based, non- commercial programs. These 2008 Biennial artists take freedom of speech and cultural heterogeneity as their watchwords as they make art that parodies commercially sponsored news organizations. They champion localism overglobalism and especially encourage community members to speak about their own experience rather than having national journalists speak for them. In the Spring of 2008, NPR guided the YI teens through various hands-on workshops. With their help, the teens broadcast their own creative public service announcements, built their own radio transmitters, and created “radio plays.”
