Famille partageant un repas d'anniversaire

Aurélie Charon and Caroline Gillet originally worked together on a variety of radio shows about youth. Illustrator Amélie Bonnin joined the team in order to provide RadioLive with an original visual imagery for each performance. The idea was to bring young activists who they have been in contact with from all over the world together on stage – in the same place, at the same time. RadioLive is about commitment to ideas big and small: identity, minority rights, freedom and new modes of action. Participants form a network of support, inspiring one another. The RadioLive initiative operates like a radio show across three dimensions. At each performance Aurélie Charon and Caroline Gillet are the hosts, Amélie Bonnin draws live on stage and 3 to 4 young people from around the world share their stories and experience. There is discussion, art, and music. A generation of people who are determined to act even in the midst of uncertain environments come together to exchange ideas. They come from Gaza, Dakar, Sarajevo, New Delhi, Marseille and beyond. This is a generation of people who are sick of being spoken for, who are ready to take the microphone in their own hands.

WORKSHOPS

So that everyone can craft their stories with their own two hands, we conduct workshops on documentary stories. It comes down to making participants aware of a story, a testimony, a portrait, sound and images. Everyone is invited to collect words and to draw a portrait of someone using sound. From this sound material, we reflect together in a creative way on how to convey a true story
