sans Frontières is a two-day conference that will explore the boundaries
It is about transcending boundaries -- boundaries between art forms, boundaries
between public and community broadcasting. It will encourage us to think of
the airspace we all share, and how we can make the airwaves resonate with new
voices and new ways of presenting ideas.
Transmissions sans Frontières is sponsored by the Canadian Society for
Independent Radio Production with funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
