Arts Riot Super Supper—September 2015
99.3FM, WBTV-LP, the new low-power community radio station VCAM is building with the community and RETN next year, was a finalist for the Arts Riot Super Supper on Thursday, September 10, 2015. This is the full video of all presenters: Burlington Seed Exchange, The Anthill Collective, Vermont Doula Access Coalition (they won the $1K live crowd funded money!), and 99.3FM, WBTV-LP.
What is a Super Supper?
Think of it as an in-person, live crowdfunding event meets a TED Talk. The audience pays $10 at the door, gets free dinner, schmoozes with the presenters, and then listens to the series of 5-minute presentations where each group shares their social impact project. After eating, people vote, and the winner receives the funds from the night. Pretty rad, right?
Why was WBTV-LP a finalist?
Well, we think our vision of a new low-power community radio station—one that teaches the art of radio, puts on creative projects, live broadcasts local events, and otherwise enriches the local airwaves—is exciting! Apparently the Arts Riot folks did too. We were picked from a bunch of community movers and shakers who applied. We got just 5 minutes (we were last) to make our case for why this station is an important new piece of the local community media landscape.
Thanks to Arts Riot for destroying apathy and funding community social endeavors.
