The corporate media is in crisis. We've always known that corporate media owners prioritise profit over the service of independent journalism, and that this has dire consequences for democracy and social justice. 3CR was formed 41 years ago to counter capitalist media, and we are delivering radio for the people, by the people. In 2017 3CR is Radio for Change. Radio for Change aims to capture the global mood of resistance, and during our annual Radiothon fundraiser we ask all our supporters to donate so that we can stay radical and independent.

On Sunday 28 May the Pan Afrikan Poets Cafe presents Afrika Speaks Back, a pop up matinee of poetry, reggae and performance at Afro Hub, 727, Nicholson Street, North Carlton. From 2-5pm the live event will also be broadcast on 3CR, so join us for a transformative afternoon of celebration. Afrika Speaks Back is a free event, funded by the City of Yarra Community Grants Program, curated and hosted by Sista Zai Zanda and featuring renowned storyteller Alia Gabres and an incredible line up of new and emerging artists. Bookings are essential. Check out the Facebook page for details.
