Radio Nikosia

(Barcelona, Spain, 2003)

A radio project created by anthropologists Martín Correa-Urquiza and Nella Gonzalo, with the support of the Asociación Joia in Barcelona. Its members are people diagnosed with some kind of mental illness, and the objective of the group is to make manifest the stigmas facing those affected and to seek the reasons for mental suffering. It broadcasts regularly from Radio Contrabanda and takes part weekly in the programme La ventana, on Cadena ser. It has collaborated with different radio and printed media, and its members have given conferences at universities and congresses on mental health. Its most outstanding broadcasts have been collected in El libro de Radio Nikosia (2004).

It is currently preparing a social awareness-raising campaign relating to mental illnesses together with the Complot School of Advertising.
