Clocktower Radio Profiles

The hosts of Clocktower Radio interview an assortment of artists, writers, curators, producers, activists, thinkers and doers.

CB Radio

CB Radio was inspired by the research, design, and development of Citizen Bridge, a temporary floating bridge to reconnect New Yorkers to their waterways. In order to learn about New York City’s waterways, Nancy Nowacek artist and project founder, engaged the expertise and advice of writers, architects, artists, industrial designers, bridge engineers, as well as the experts and enthusiasts that comprise New York City’s maritime community. From the Harbor School to the Waterfront Museum and Showboat Barge, CB Radio—in collaboration with Jake Nussbaum, artist and Clocktower Radio Station Manager— will introduce listeners to the people and ideas that define New York City’s harbor.

Paper Cuts

Paper Cuts is an exploration of the contemporary world of zines and DIY publishing. Hosted by Christopher Kardambikis, each program will feature writers, performers, and artists who have shared their work in print, on paper, and in small editions. Zines are truly dynamic publications that have built and supported engaged communities around ideals, experiences, genres, music, politics, poetry…anything that can be printed, shared, and/or mailed. The series will act as a cross section of this varied landscape and rich history. Listen to voices that would normally live in your hands and demand your eyeballs.

2MF (2 Many Feelings)

2MF (2 Many Feelings) is a series of monthly community meetings organized by artists Sonya Derman and Maria Stabio. Determined to encourage pro-emotive and ante-academic conversation among artists in New York City, 2MF meetings center around content significant to the facilitating artist. 2MF takes action in two parts: monthly meetings facilitated by local artists focusing on a topic of their interest, and a radio show/podcast hosted by Clocktower Radio in Redhook, Brooklyn. All meetings are open to the public, and Derman and Stabio encourage newcomers to join. Meeting details will always be posted on the 2MF website, www.2manyfeelings.com.

QCA's Creative Conversations

Creative Conversations is a signature program of the Queens Council on the Arts. It is a monthly dinner meeting hosted in different Queens neighborhoods where artists have the opportunity to network, organize, meet community stakeholders, and develop strategies for community advocacy. It is open to artists and the general public.
