Korppiradio is a collectively made made possible, but individuals made their shows freely. In addition, shows and content is made collectively in the studio.
In the differences of views and conflict lies the core of a new sort of critical and creative social space. The fearless expression of the differences allows free criticism and the assimilation to different experiences and views. Despite the differences we can collaborate in dialogue where beliefs and the full scale of human experience can be in a peaceful conflict.
The radio is open to anyone who is open to self-criticism and agrees with the principles of volunteer and non-commercial radio.
Korppiradio is deliberately broke. It does not seek to become exchange value. Korppiradio is not owned by anyone and can not be privatised. Korppiradio does not sell ads. Korppiradio is beyond commodification.
The running costs (rent, equipment, costs of the studio) are funded by crowd funding and support measures, and by the corresponding alternative means of support.
The ripples of power belong to the decision making collective of makers. Decisions are taken at meetings and a consensus is sought. Our way of trying to dismantle power is making it apparent and become conscious of it.
Makers of the shows make their content autonomously without anyone’s censorship, intervention or pressure. Conflict is not only permissible but desirable. The program may be left unpublished by a collective decision if it is perceived, for example, to be a violent, racist, or otherwise inconsistent witht the principles of the radio collective.
