While waiting to enter into its fourth phase when Radio GAMeC will become an actual web radio, from February to April 2021 Radio GAMeC has been on Clubhouse.

Every day, from Monday to Friday, from 8.30 to 9.00 Lorenzo Giusti and Lara Facco welcomed several art world professionals engaging in open and participatory conversations on the current issues.

Radio GAMeC at this stage has returned to its original format: a daily appointment to share comments and experiences related to the year-long health crisis.

Radio GAMeC is an occasion to cultivate culture despite the many limitations, to promote a narrative about the complexity of the world of art in the present moment, and to imagine a new future.

Radio GAMeC is a participative space open to dialogue, in keeping with its new social media platform.

Listen to some of the episodes.
