Welcome to Dreadnought South West

Thanks to everyone who joined us for Occupy the Airwaves on International Women’s Day.

Our theme this year is, Freedom: Not a one-off event, but a lifelong practice. The programmes will be online soon so that you can listen again.

Occupy the Airwaves 2022 is supported by Awards for All, Devon Community Fund, and Devon County Council. A massive thank you to our funders for supporting our ongoing work.

Occupy the Airwaves 2020  was broadcast live on Phonic FM Exeter’s Community Radio on Sunday 8th March from 8am until Midnight; celebrating International Women’s Day.  You will be able to listen in again to the inspiring programmes and stories from women from across the city of Exeter and beyond that took place on the day.  We will announce this here very soon.A massive thank you to everyone involved.  It was a truly wonderful event with so many people joining us in the Workshops Space at the Phoenix and at Ashburton Arts Centre.
