Social Economy Radio: May 31st to June 2nd

May 4, 2011

Social Economy Radio will be sending their signal from the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, in downtown Fredericton, from May 31st to June 2nd.

This spring, the airwaves in Fredericton will be enhanced (at least briefly) by a new community radio station that will be broadcasting on FM.

The broadcast, from about 9 am to 9 pm each day, will feature stories, music, views, opinions, analysis, culture, and celebration. We’ll be highlighting the work of the social economy as a whole — community and volunteer organizations, social enterprises, co-ops, and other good folks doing good work for all the right reasons. But it will also be a time to enjoy the lively culture and social cohesion that is at the heart of a vibrant society. There are a number of ways that you can get involved with this project:

• Participate on the broadcast, by coming by to chat, report on what is happening in your community, sing, muse, rant, testify, challenge, reflect, or whatever the spirits prompt. If you’d like to book a specific time slot (to fit your schedule), e-mail Ivan Emke at: iemke @

• Drop in to the Charlotte Street Arts Centre (732 Charlotte Street) while the broadcast is taking place. You’re welcome to hang around at the “studio,” which will really be more like a friendly front porch than a studio. Maybe you’ll get inspired to go on air. But no pressure.

• Listen to the broadcast. We are getting a frequency from Industry Canada to use during the broadcast, so we’ll let you know what that is as soon as we get it.

• Tell other people about this event – so they can participate, drop in, and listen. We’ll have lots of different voices on the broadcast; but we want lots of different ears as well.

• We’ll also be webcasting on the internet and posting on Facebook and twitting on Twitter and who knows what else. If you want to connect to that part of the event, get in touch with Charlene Gagnon at: charlene.m.gagnon @

Confused? Well, if you have any questions, give Ivan a call (his coordinates are listed above). We hope to see you in Fredericton!
