KLFM is a project and initiative to create a community radio, whose primary intentions to be of service to these so called „cultural minority“. In terms of program, KLFM is basically directed towards contents concerning the local and urban culture, as well as the independent and counter-culture, or in a nutshell; the sort of culture which is not represented by commercial and mainstream media.
The methodology of activity is conceived in the form of educational context. Our wish is that all radio program content has an educational approach regardless of its content (music, comics, local and independent culture, less represented and non commercial sport and similar). The second basic element is participation, where the maximum engagement of people is achieved through the inclusion of interested associates (apropos new members of radio), and their training in techniques depending on radio, in order to give the maximum activation. This model of approach creates a network of newly active citizens, not only in radio media, but in a transmedial way, according to the media concept which is described in the following text. KLFM is represented by means of the integration of several elements of new media. The radio program is transmitted through the internet, as online streaming, and all the shows are then archived in the form of podcast. Using this method, the whole content is available on demand. Likewise, each show has its complementary content on the associated web site, in blog form.
This media process provides several communication channels to each show, and it also provides the maximum availability of all the content, according to contemporary media practice. Using thus concept, the participation of listeners is achieved according the basic intention of KLFM – radio for Community!
InPerspective is a non-profit project made up of a network of journalists, translators and readers dedicated to reporting stories that explore different subjects and perspectives from all over the world.
We believe that journalism must inform society in a comprehensive manner. That’s why InPerspective starts at a point where the conventional media reaches its limits by giving voice to worldwide perspectives. To address readers from all over the world, InPerspective translates all articles into as many languages as possible. Our team of translators works alongside the founding team and the journalists to promote and to implement our vision.
Our journalists write about timely issues selected by our community. The platform allows for writers to create new topics both with regional or global focuses. InPerspective is managed by a core group of editors and regional coordinators.
Die Stadt Split:
Split – Charlottenburg/Wilmersdorf partnership started in the year 1970 (times of Cold War and Berlin Wall, when people from Split/Croatia could freely walk on both sides of the Wall). Times and political systems have changed (there is no more the Wall, Croatia is 28th member state of the EU), partnership is still in good condition, strengthening. Representatives of the cities regularly visit each other on yearly basis, various cultural groups perform (theatre, music, dance…) at city festivities, or play (water-polo, volleyball…), chambers of commerce have their communications, grammar schools are starting to cooperate…
Up to today we have in this partnership no experience in citizen projects (in sense of the program ‘Europe for Citizen’). This is one of 15 official partnerships that the City has worldwide (one among ten in Europe).
