A CONVERTED ute will be making the courtyard of the Moonah Arts Centre (MAC) its home this month, where it will be broadcasting a brand new, contemporary community radio station.

Moonah Community Radio is a project from Hobart-based radio queens Sisters Akousmatica (Phillipa Stafford and Julia Drouhin).

This dynamic duo has been promoting women and gender diverse voices in public space since 2016.

The four-week radio transmission will broadcast new radio art commissions, live and pre-recorded community content and selections from an international open call.

Transmitting from their custom broadcast ute, Moonah Community Radio will be a hub of activity on Thursdays and Fridays from 10am-5pm and Saturdays from 11am-3pm.

Moonah Community Radio is now broadcasting until 14 December on 97.1FM and streaming online at

Entry is free.
