AUTORADIO was a community radio developed by Micrópolis collective in partnership with residents of the neighbourhoods Lindéia and Regina, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. This project was carried out during the Reboque artistic residency program at JA.CA — Center for Art and Technology. The community radio took place inside of a yellow wagon adapted for this project.
After understanding the musical history of the neighborhoods of Lindéia and Regina and the historic political engagement of their residents, AUTORADIO worked as an open-air radio station whose programming was either created live with passers-by, or collectively composed of previous recordings. The AUTORADIO physically occupied local public space, creating new social possibilities for everyday life while amplifying the voice of the community.
