Radio 33 is a micro-broadcasting station and ephemeral gallery space based in North Hobart, Tasmania for sound-based artworks by women and non-binary artists, propagated emergency broadcast style – 24 hours a day for twenty-one days per session. It is run by artist Tricky Walsh who maintains the tech and curates the program.
YL33 was a shortwave code invented by pioneering female amateur radio user Clara Reger **which she created especially for women communicating with other women – the salutation ’33,’ which meant “love sealed with friendship”. Reger knew that to hear another girl’s voice on the other end was rare and special. What a gift, to find kinship with women, through the radio, across the ocean, across the globe.**
With this legacy in mind, Radio 33 will continue to celebrate the presence of unexpected voices on the radio waves by providing them this space to be heard.
Radio 33 commenced broadcasting on the 19th of January 2017 at 104FM at Contemporary Art Tasmania with works by artist and publisher Sarah Jones.
