“Since 2007, Eastern Bloc has been at the forefront of digital art dissemination, promotion and production in Quebec. The vision at Eastern Bloc is to explore and push the creative boundaries situated at the intersection of art, technology, and science, as well as all other emerging digital practices. Hybrid processes and new modes of production are at the core of the centre’s mandate, as is to support the work of emerging artists by providing them with an exchange platform with more established artists, through initiatives of a local and international scale. Eastern Bloc promotes audience participation, technological democratization, and the utilization of urban space via public intervention projects. Innovative in its nature, Eastern Bloc, through emerging artistic and technological practices, continues to advance a critical stance with regards to these many evolutions.” Eastern Bloc

Queercorps: A long standing program that addresses a variety of issues in the Montreal queer community. It aims to highlight different realities for queers that are not addressed on other shows. The program also seeks out and speaks with leaders of Montreal’s queer community about the events and issues that affect them.
This program is intended to provide a space to both foster and showcase collective creative radio
production by both amateur and veteran CKUT volunteers in spoken word. The program will push
limits of experimental radio and play with the elements that made radio magical in the past to its
audience. The program is meant to push the bounds of the producer’s and the listener’s
imagination through radio drama, soundscapes, poetry, storytelling and documentary, including
CKUT’s wayback archives; production heavy and creative works are encouraged.
