Radio Uprising

Radio Uprising is The Art Effect’s exciting weekly radio show that gives youth producers the opportunity to express themselves creatively via the airwaves. In a weekly hour-long live broadcast on 91.3fm WVKR, youth engage in an on-air discussion of politics, social action, current events, and personal experience. Each week, Radio Uprising features a rotating lineup of youth DJs and radio hosts.

Since 2008, Radio Uprising has provided a public platform for young people’s opinions and perspectives on a variety of hard-hitting topics such as media representation, fake news, technology’s impact on youth, and depression.

You can hear Radio Uprising by tuning in to 91.3fm on Thursdays from 4-5pm EST, by catching the week’s live stream on, and by downloading each week’s episode as a podcast from iTunes and Stitcher.

The Art Effect is monitoring the spread of COVID-19 in New York and will continue to implement health and safety measures to protect our students and their families. The Art Effect’s in-person programs are on hiatus at least through April 20, 2020. As long as Dutchess County and New York State have mandated school closures and there is local, state, and federal guidance to avoid social gatherings, we will not run in-person programs. When we postpone, reschedule, or shift the format of classes, parents and participants will be notified immediately. Should it become necessary for The Art Effect to cancel scheduled camps or classes, prorated refunds will be issued to those affected by the cancellation. We thank you for your continued support and we will keep everyone apprised of any major changes at The Art Effect that may occur.
