Radio Cartography

Southern Exposure is pleased to present Radio Cartography, a new yearlong, innovative radio project by Neighborhood Public Radio involving a diverse group of artists, Mission District residents, youth, and Bay Area audiences in the production of media-based public art projects and original radio programming. Radio Cartography seeks to investigate strategies for exploring and mapping public space using the medium of radio in non-traditional ways. The project attempts to merge technology-based endeavors with more conventional tactics of walking, performance, and interventions. Radio Cartography takes the form of a home base radio station at Southern Exposure’s new Mission Street storefront gallery, a mobile radio production unit that will migrate throughout the Mission District neighborhood and the greater Bay Area, live broadcasts that take place on the second Saturday of each month from 1 to 5 pm from the NPR station at Southern Exposure’s gallery, and three other distinct projects entitled State of Mind Stations, Talking Homes and City Tours.

Neighborhood Public Radio's programming is accessible on their website at, broadcast from Southern Exposure's gallery, and at hundreds of locations in San Francisco and Oakland where distinct portions of the projects take place.

Tune in to 88.9 FM!
