• Radioactive International is a collective of like-minded people who are passionate about their music, art and politics. We are a free-form radio station with no set formats, playlists or genres. We have nearly 40 DJs playing a varied mixture of alternative music from punk, metal, ska, reggae and historical recordings. Our main rule? No fascists, racists, sexists, homophobes or religious presenters. We broadcast online, but also transmit live from gigs and festivals. Expect to hear about lefty music, politics and art. A motto of the station is that we’re not here to break the law with an illegal radio station just to play bland pop music available on many of the state and corporate stations.

    Landscapes of Crisis – photographic exhibition

    In connection to the two-day academic symposium at UCD on “World-Ecology, World-Economy, World-Literature,” this cultural evening in Dublin city centre will explore artistic representations of the intertwined themes of environmental and economic crisis. It will feature an exhibition of activist-photography on  social and political responses to economic and ecological crisis in post-Tiger Ireland. The exhibition launch and wine reception in the James Joyce St. Gallery will be followed by two readings in the Foley St. LAB from performance poet Dave Lordan, author of Invitation to a Sacrifice and First Book of Frags, and Mike McCormack,  award-winning novelist and author of Late Forensic Songs. McCormack and Lordan’s work is acutely attuned to the challenges of contemporary life in recession-Ireland, whether from the perspective of the urban environment in Dublin, or of the rural environments of the western coast.

    6 PM Wine Reception and Launch of Exhibition of Activist Photography, in the James Joyce St. Gallery.  Featuring the work of Andrew Flood, William Hederman, Aileen O’Carroll and Paul Reynolds.

    7 PM Readings and Q& A with Mike McCormack and Dave Lordan, in The Lab, Foley St. (just a few doors down from The Gallery)

    Admission to the event is free and members of the public are welcome to attend; however, as numbers in the gallery and reading venue are limited, we request that attendees RSVP to reserve a place. Please email  worldecologyeconomy@gmail.com to reserve your place.

    Organisers: Sharae Deckard, Treasa Deloughry, and Michael Paye
