A Radio Play Festival

Since 2020, community attention to caregiving has expanded greatly, with the COVID-19 pandemic exploding traditionally gendered caregiving roles and duties. The pandemic imploded society’s relationship to needing community in order to survive.

KCHUNG PUBLIC: Care is a daylong radio play festival which explores artists who both are caregivers and those who receive caregiving. The festival will feature new shortform plays commissioned by KCHUNG Radio as part of their ongoing residency at MOCA. Featuring tabling organizations Long Term Caregivers Union and Helping Hands. Complimentary food will be provided by Eddie's Pizza Napoletana.

Self-governed and operated on a shoestring budget, KCHUNG Radio was formed in 2011 as an open forum of artists, musicians, writers, and philosophers. Broadcasting live on 1630 AM from a studio-in-the-sky above a pho restaurant in Los Angeles’ Chinatown, KCHUNG Radio stands apart from other local LA-based stations in its programmatically evolving nature: currently broadcasting over 40 hours weekly of original & uncensored content. With the intention to platform traditionally underrepresented voices, there are talk shows, art reviews, interviews with psychics, scientists, plant life, and ghosts, live music, dressing room gossip, surrealist meditation lessons, advice panels, and unscripted gestures of an economic or performative nature. Functioning as a framework for the expression of local artists as individual contributors, the station is an open portal, accessible to any and all interested parties. It celebrates and promotes the efforts of the dedicated amateur while remaining an autonomous entity for collective expression.

KCHUNG PUBLIC is made possible with support from Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation (EHTF)
