December 9, 2022 sees the second Easterndaze On Air radio day. Community radios from Central and Eastern Europe will connect through the Easterndaze x Berlin platform, in cooperation with Cashmere Radio, in an effort to encourage collaboration between these DIY mediums. Since the first radio day in April 2021, which connected radios and listeners during the pandemic, the war in Ukraine has further heightened a state of political and social crisis.
These radios play a crucial role in their respective artistic and community milieus (being implicitly political, especially in Ukraine, Georgia, Poland, Belarus and Hungary). The project’s participants are these community radios from Central or Eastern Europe: Radio Kapital from Warsaw, Lahmacun Radio from Budapest, 20ft Radio and Gasoline Radio from Kyiv, Mutant from Tblissi, Plato from Minsk along with the Independent Community Radio Network (ICRN) connecting radios in Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius and Helsinki, hosted by Berlin's Cashmere Radio. The project will encompass collaborative programming, including joint shows and radiophonic contributions created by each radio especially for this live broadcast on FM and online. The session will culminate in a panel talk about the issue of community radios, hosted by musicologist and community radio expert Ieva Gudaiyte.
Listen live on December 9, 2022, from 4pm CET on individual radio websites and on FM 88.4 Berin 90.7 Potsdam.

Bärenzwinger Gallery, Berlin
The Double is an immersive installation by Holly Childs & Gediminas Žygus (Hydrangea), commissioned by Easterndaze x Berlin 2021, and presented by Subtext Recordings. The Double is part of a fictitious quantum entangled network of European colonial gardens with which the artist duo is engaging. In The Double, botanical spaces are problematised, as sites of camouflaged violence, of appropriation and deletion. This iteration of the work takes place on the twin islands of Bärenzwinger, formerly used to cage captive city bears, and engages with the history of Köllnischer Park, once owned by the Freemason lodge.
19th to 23rd April 2021
For the first time, community radios from Central and Eastern Europe connected through the Easterndaze Berlin platform. Easterndaze Berlin On Air facilitated conversation and exchange between diverse voices which you can follow both locally and all over the world. Joining the project were Radio Kapital🡥 from Warsaw, Lahmacun Radio🡥 from Budapest, IDA Radio🡥 from Tallinn/Helsinki and Cashmere Radio🡥 from Berlin. Showmakers and musicians contributed to a week of collaborative broadcasting practices, creating and developing new collective experiments in radiophonic formats. Easterndaze Berlin On Air took place from April 19th to April 23rd.
An Embrace' is a collaborative project between the Bulgarian experimental music collective Amek and the German music label Vaagner.
Commissioned by Easterndaze as part of the festival’s fourth edition, 'An Embrace' aims to create a bridge between two communities from the different cultural environments of Eastern and Western Europe.
Each label invited artists from the respective regions to form four duos. Evitceles & Fortunes Brine, Zhe Pechorin & Anasisana, krāllār & Ekin Fil, as well as Vague Voices & Crosspolar collaborated remotely to compose a piece inspired by the project's theme – 'An Embrace.’
