UMFM will be broad­cast­ing a por­tion of the Wet­land Project from mid­night to 8AM CT as part of this nation­wide endeavour.

Artists Brady Marks and Mark Tim­mings invite you to fill your home, work and leisure spaces with the sounds of birds, frogs, insects and air­planes! Immerse your­self in the vital­i­ty of the 24-hour cir­ca­di­an rhythm of the ṮEḴTEḴSEN marsh in unsur­ren­dered W̱SÁNEĆ ter­ri­to­ry (Sat­ur­na Island, British Colum­bia). The broad­cast engages its audi­ence in real time and stim­u­lates a pow­er­ful re‑enchantment of our rela­tion­ship with the liv­ing environment.

Cli­mate emer­gen­cies, polit­i­cal upheaval and the ongo­ing pan­dem­ic are rais­ing soci­etal anx­i­ety. It’s impor­tant to stay informed, but now more than ever, tak­ing a day to pause and recon­nect with the oth­er-than-human” world helps lis­ten­ers to col­lect their thoughts and find a foot­ing in these tumul­tuous times. The slow-radio for­mat pro­vides a life-affirm­ing break from the stress­ful news cycle and offers time to reflect upon a more lucid and car­ing future.

Wet­land Project respect­ful­ly acknowl­edges that its work takes place on the unsur­ren­dered, sacred, ances­tral lands and waters of the W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations and with­in the extend­ed ter­ri­to­ries of oth­er Hul̓q̓umín̓um̓- and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓-speaking peo­ples. Brady Marks and Mark Tim­mings invite you to join them in mak­ing a com­mit­ment to become informed about the pain and suf­fer­ing inflict­ed upon Indige­nous peo­ples by colo­nial his­to­ry and to sup­port them on their path to heal­ing, jus­tice and self-determination.
