about

fugitive radio is an artistic-research project initiated by Dr Sumugan Sivanesan to raise migrant, queer and anticolonial issues and music in Helsinki and beyond. Beginning in mid 2020, the project has developed over a series of collaborative live events, supported by {openradio}. These have sought to develop decentralised and distributed modes of radio-making such as: radiophonic picnic, audio fanzine,  swarm sound system and online club. The fugitive frequency podcast broadcasts on the first Tuesday of every month on CoLaboRadio, via Freie Radios – Berlin Brandenburg. fugitive radio was showcased at Pixelache Festival #Burn____, 6–13 June 2021 and has been generously supported by the Kone Foundation (2020–2021).
