Radio Art Festival
Amidst all those great things, we're also hosting a first-ever Radio Art Festival called Sweet Wreath Speaks! on March 16th at Railroad Park. Mark your calendars and join us for a full day of performances, spoken word, talks, collaborative sculpture and experimental broadcasts on local AM radio! The theme is "broadcasting sounds & seeds for pollinators", and will feature a seed swap, recording tent, planting workshops and dancing bats & bees! That's right! Think of it as similar to our annual May Day Festival but on a grander scale & in the center of town. This has all the makings for a historic event in the realm of Alabama art....help us bring it to fruition!
Donations will pay for:
- paying performers at the festival
- printing zines for the festival
- vinyl pressing costs
We need your support to fully realize these projects and share them with you & the world. Donations will be used to pay for vinyl pressing costs and paying performers at the festival in March. Your interest helps us continue our mission of presenting one-of-a-kind sonic art and supporting the culture of experimental music in the South and beyond.
We're very thankful to everyone that has come out to shows we've hosted, bought an album, shared our music and shown support for our work over the years. We've been publishing & presenting amazing experimental artists and writers since 2016, and hope to continue for a long time. You can help us expand our audience and directly support the work of innovative artists. Thank you very very much, from the depth of our hearts <3
