The RYBN collective's residency project is to build a local radio station, that is, a micro station created collectively with the community, through programming and technology workshops. The objective is to create spaces for dialogue to debate in real time on capitalism and digital work, bringing together multiple perspectives from the different contexts of the participants, and thus better understand the different problems in the city.
