COMMUNITY

KWPA Vision Statement

KWPA aims to encapsulate in programming the cultural, multi generational, arts and entertainment opportunities on Whidbey Island in a broadcast medium accessible to everyone in multiple audio mediums by creating a truly community based radio station.

This translates into several actions.

First KWPA is open to members of the community. You could be a KWPA broacaster.

Second KWPA should be reflective of the community and its interests. KWPA invites radio programs on any and all topics of interest to Whidbey Islanders

Third KWPA should be participative in the community. KWPA will, within the constraints of its resources, provide coverage of local events and activities such as festivals and public celebrations.

As part of the accessibility element, we are runing a series of training meetings get in touch if you are interested.
