The Wireless House

Project: The Wireless House

ABC Radio National/Australia Council artist-in-residence Nigel Helyer is looking for your help. Heard about a small brick hut in a park that housed a radio for community entertainment during the Depression? It's called the Wireless House, and it still exists (minus the radio) in Sydney's Glebe. 

Nigel and his Wireless House team say, "we're looking for community contributions that can weave personal stories of the Wireless House, radio in Australia, historical photographs from this period, and academic and personal writing about Glebe and audio to incorporate into the House itself and online. You, or your family, are invited to upload your stories, your images and your writings."

What do I do?
