Red Clay Radio is a pop-up radio station located on Red Clay farm in Economy Nova Scotia for the duration of the White Rabbit Art Residency and festival. The station is broadcast onsite via FM transmitter and over the internet on the festival website. The radio station functions as an experimental art space, conversational and educational platform, a traditional radio station, and a communication medium between artists onsite during the residency and between the community at Red clay and the greater public. During the residency, artists in residence (rabbits) make radio programming throughout their residency on Red Clay ranging from experimental audio art, music and traditional talk radio. Guest contributors from elsewhere are invited to submit material to be played on the station. Artists debate topics of critical interest to their practice. Critiques happen on air. Local experts and community members are consulted for contextual framing of the site. etc. The station was originally founded five years ago by Newfoundland based artist Michael Waterman with his own transmitter.
