Background info:

Hunt & Darton is a live art collaboration between artists Jenny Hunt and Holly Darton. Hunt & Darton are the creators of the award winning Hunt & Darton Cafe which came to Harlow in 2015, popping up in an empty shop on the hight street for the month of June serving tea, cake and art.

Radio Local is Hunt & Darton’s latest outdoor performance event set to tour the UK and beyond throughout 2018. In Radio Local we deconstruct each element of a ‘radio show’ in order to build a new local radio station with the public it proposes to serve; radio built by locals for locals. We ask for stories and contributions, offer the opportunity to make live jingles, feedback on our ‘radio voices’, play games to make content, make sure we can blame our hourly elected local DJ for the music choices and stay live for the duration of a day in our new home.

To support the tour Hunt & Darton will be running outreach workshops for local people in each tour location to make radio that will feature in the live show, which is broadcast from a public location for 12 hrs straight hosted by Hunt & Darton. This workshop in Harlow is the first of these workshops.
