The research project is conceived to participate in social reality actively and aims to create a specific "radio poetics", taking into account paradigms and specificities of the radio medium, developing a compositional and theoretical approach intended as a tool for critical reflection on current issues.

The project's ambition is to foster the development of a radio station open to the public in situ and, at the same time broadcasting online with an Online Interactive Sonic Platform, which will be hosting the web radio. The aims of such a model are to explore the continuously expanding potential of new media and to offer an intimate space for reflection on artistic practices and communities. Collaborating with various realities and creating bridges between different communities within the city of Den Haag, Leiden, Ghent, and Berlin, the project is an attempt to enhance and celebrate the performative, social, and informative power of radio she believes lies within the medium itself.
