Workshop of Weird Radios 

Building on the initiative proposed by Barrios Bajos Gallery during the open installation days, we organized a radio workshop where we shared technical tools and participation strategies, focusing on the practice and culture of radio. Leading up to the arrival of Terra Ignota in Valdivia, Barrios Bajos Gallery, in collaboration with the Regional Secretariat of Cultures, Arts, and Heritage of the Ríos region, carried out the project ‘Los Ríos: Visual Territory IV.’ This project included an artistic residency aimed at platforms and spaces for programming and coordination of visual arts in the region, whether public, private, or self-managed.

During this experience, several collectives expressed interest in exploring the radio medium to advance their initiatives. Consequently, we decided to create a space for experimentation to share tools that could be useful in subsequent instances of participation and engagement with audiences.
