++++++++++This radio broadcast is the result of conversations and working relationships that navigate the concept of what an archipelagic construction could mean, in terms of organization, belonging, and self. It was constructed between an archipelago of friends such as but not limited to Angeliki, Asher, Bas, Chung, Clara, Reinaart, and Tanex.This radio broadcast departs from conversations about the essay “Sketches of Archipelagic Poetics of Postcolonial Belonging” by maryamdeluz and Marco Cuevas-Hewitt. The essay was an (ISLAND) of a mutual aid anarchozine package compiled by EtnikoBandido. The zine package was an (ISLAND) of Comfort People Safety Curtain 24 Hour Souvenir Shop—a collective work produced by an active cell of To Be Determined.

++++++++++Panelists and moderators will be experimenting with a proposed format of archipelagic conversation, allowing for silence (water) to flow between speech (islands). Mimicking conventions of shortwave radio, after a speaker is done with their intervention, they will say “over.” The rest of the group will wait approximately 5 seconds before adding a response. This is a welcoming of (radio) silence as a necessary part of (archipelagic) conversation. The listeners are encouraged to have parallel conversations on the IRC chat window, where it is OK to nongkrong on top of the speakers. Moderators will be actively monitoring IRC to give voice/volume to the neighborly din.
