Electromagnetic Touch: Radios and Community


Starting Monday, April 4! Join us for our second seminar in the Found in Translation series: Electromagnetic Touch: Radios and Community. Fleisher Art Memorial and Asian Arts Initiative are proud to present this series of FREE workshops led by the Sound Museum Collective from Philadelphia. The Collective holds space to reconstruct our relationship to sounds by creating a platform for women, nonbinary, and trans sound artists and engineers through workshops, collaborative projects, and creative community partnerships. 

The series runs from April 4 through May 16, including one introductory online session and three in-person sessions. Content will include a historical overview of radio history, hands-on experimentation with radio technologies, and developing radio stories through Queer perspectives. All sessions will meet on Mondays from 6:30-8:30pm. 

Found in Translation is a free series of art history and critical theory workshops organized by Fleisher in partnership with several cultural institutions throughout Philadelphia. The series specifically focuses on centering BIPOC and Queer voices, reflecting a more inclusive view of the communities we work with. Online seminars will be provided with live Spanish interpretation.
