Partnership for Ràdio Illa content production

foto 2020 conveni ACAFConsell de Formentera president Alejandra Ferrer and the spokesman of the Audiovisual Cultural Association of Formentera (ACAF), Álvaro Mendoza, made official a joint action agreement for content production at public radio station Ràdio Illa. Under the terms of the deal, ACAF will receive €30,000 to produce content for Formentera’s public radio station. Cultura consellera Susana Labrador was also present at the signing.

The Consell owns the broadcasting license for municipal radio station 107.9FM, a public service catering to people of Formentera and designed to  enrich and invigorate local culture.

Production of content for Ràdio Illa has been administered for some time now by ACAF—a non-profit aimed at disseminating local culture, promoting media and encouraging the dynamic engagement of islanders in the local cultural scene.

In 2019, a joint action agreement valued at €50,000 was clinched between the two entities. The Covid-19 crisis and the invocation of emergency orders at the beginning of 2020 made the signing of a new partnership temporarily impossible, and Ràdio Illa received a €20,000 advance in order to continue operating.
