Event description

Description

When 3CR Community Radio gained its licence in 1976, it was considered Australia’s first community-owned and community-run grassroots radio station. Now in its forties, the station is well-known as a political and social justice broadcaster. 3CR prioritises the voices of women, First Nations people, workers, refugees, and the many issues and people misrepresented and under-represented in the mass media. The station aims to provide a media space that enables progressive communities to voice ideas and build their power to create social change. Since 1984 it has been housed at 21-23 Smith Street, Fitzroy. As a 24-hour broadcaster, the station is run by 400 volunteers and six staff, and broadcasts on 855AM, 3CR Digital, and 3cr.org.au with live streaming, audio on demand and podcasts. It has four studios, meeting and office spaces, amenities and an internal courtyard in a purpose-renovated building owned and run by the station community. As a not-for-profit organisation, the station is supported by donations during an annual radiothon, along with subscriptions and other funded activities. Artwork (and graffiti) adorn the outside of the building, while inside is a community hub welcoming and training the diverse broadcasters that present 130 shows in more than 20 community languages across the week.
