99.1 WQRT LPFM is a non-commercial, experimental on-air home for contemporary art, music, and community. Licensed by the FCC with a reach of most of the city of Indianapolis, Indiana (500,000+ people), WQRT is owned and managed by Big Car Collaborative — a nonprofit arts organization and cross-discipline collective of artists. With the help of volunteers, we broadcast from Listen Hear — our sound-art space and audio studio in the Garfield Park neighborhood.
Big Car staff artists Holly Sommers, Oreo Jones, Carlie Foreman and Jim Walker lead work on the station and its programming. WQRT focuses on volunteer supported radio shows, community partnerships, and educational programming to bring forward local voices to discuss music, art, community and culture.
* LP (low-power) means that this is a short but impressive terrestrial radio signal traveling on the airwaves. WQRT is designed to reach our local community and to be small on purpose.
