THE radio des suds
ON-AIR FROM mas-thibert
Monday 4th of March 3:30p.m. Reception hall, Mas-Thibert
Wintry parenthesis for the SUDS’s ephemeral antenna, managed by Antoine Chao (Comme un bruit qui court on France Inter) ! Trained by director Capucine Caro and journalist Hélène Servel, since the beginning of the school year, Mas-Thibert young schoolchildren organize interviews, reports and micro-sidewalks, on the theme of Camargue and its professions... for a span of a special on-air program and in public !
Initially created in 2000 to offer the Maison Centrale d’Arles prisoners a window on the city and the world with the festival Les SUDS, in ARLES, the Radio des Suds, since 2003, is animated by young Arlesians from 11 to 19 years-old.
Convinced that the blossoming of all, and especially of the young community, in social and citizen life passes through information literacy, the Radio des Suds's ambition is to give them keys so that they can form an opinion, develop criticism and an analytical mind.
If the highlight of this iconic project from SUDS, in ARLES's Cultural Actions, is the making of an ephemeral radio broadcasted on the internet and on the FM waves during the week of the Festival in July, some radio workshops are also developped within the school environment (Mas-Thibert’s primary school, Ampère and Frédéric Mistral middle-schools in Arles), in the priority districts of Arles in partnership with the social centers of Barriol and Trébon in Arles and the socio-cultural center Les Tuiles Bleues in Mas Thibert.
Let ourselves be narrated through places we live in, through our story, our environment, our inhabitants or about our current jobs on the territory ; to the sharing of our daily lives, our preoccupations, our sound environment, by establishing a radio link in between several schools : it is by this type of experience, and by the encounter with journalists and professional producers of the area, that young rookie reporters are up for creating and animating a true radio program by making interviews and reportages… thus becoming fully involved in their territory. Territory that they get their public and auditors to discover, ears wide-open, during this special on-air program, coming from Mas-Thibert !
