For several months, a group of Radio France engineers and radio directors, students and lecturers from the Ecole Nationale Supérieur de Création Industrielle got together to research and come up with the Radiobox : a simple, light and user-friendly, battery-powered mobile studio for radio broadcasting, accessible to minorities and outcasts. The concept of the Radiobox comes from previous missions we carried out in developing countries, welfare institutions and refugee camps. Between 2016 and 2018, we also conducted a number of radio workshops with NGOs and foundations (in France, the Central African Republic, Senegal, Mali, South Africa, Mexico and Iraqi Kurdistan…).
Experimenting and designing the Radiobox
Gathering and building the collective
Creation of the non-profit organization under the French law of 1901, election of the Board of Directors, mobilization and constitution of the collective (Radio France directors and engineers, journalists, academics, social and international solidarity players, etc.).
Structuring and leading projects
Structuring and leading projects An NGO department (Making Waves NGO) with the aim of providing production tools to encourage the emergence of spaces for dialogue, transmission and expression, and a creative studio for the production of audio content with a social impact (Making Waves Studio). The organization switches between producing radio content and carrying out subsidized social and solidarity projects, in France and around the world.
Growing & creating new activities
The organization created a Work Integration Department (Making Waves Insertion) to provide services to vulnerable women and men struggling greatly to find employment. Our project opens in March 2021 in Rosny-sous-Bois, Seine-Saint-Denis.
