World Radio Day London 2017
World Radio Day London 2017: Radio and Global Transitions

On Friday, Feb 10th 2017, SOAS Radio will be hosting World Radio Day London.

World Radio Day is an event for exploring today’s world of radio, bringing together community stations, local organisations, and international media groups to exhibit their work and create an exchange of ideas between industry professionals, radio enthusiasts, academics, and anyone curious.

We will be addressing the theme of ‘Radio and Global Transitions’; the experience of migration, health crises, innovative communication technologies and how they are reflected in radio.

Come learn and participate in exhibitions, workshops and discussions about contemporary approaches to radio. See what’s happening in the airwaves around you!
