Our Mission

Maker Park Radio is a Non-Profit Community Streaming Radio Station, broadcasting from the Staten Island Makerspace in the Stapleton neighborhood of Staten Island, New York City. We are supported by our community sponsors and listeners, and are 100% volunteer run.

We are committed to community building through inclusiveness of all music styles, genders, ethnicities, ages, sexual orientation and economic status through a mutual love and respect for music and artistic performance. We stand against racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia and hatred and violence.

Our Vision

We hope to create an environment where viewers and listeners feel engaged and interested in all we have to offer across multi-genre programming. We intend to give voice to the arts community on Staten Island and create a space for artists to showcase their work. We encourage support of artists across mediums and genres and hope to champion talent and give value to curation and documentation of music and artistic history as well as the art of DJing.

Our programming is free and available to be viewed and listened to through our web site, as well as from our own App (available for Apple products at the App Store and at the Google Play store for Android), or heard through the TuneIn app. This project is funded in part by a NYDCA Encore Grant.
