The Radio Conference – July 6

On the afternoon of Wednesday, 6 July, conference participants took the bus to The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. In the plenary panel ‘Re-presenting radio’ TRE partners Denmarks Radio, the Deutsches Rundfunkarchiv, Deutschland Radio Kultur and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision presented ways in which they attempted to open up their archives of broadcasting history to wider audiences.

Following a break to explore both the museum and vaults of the award-winning building of Sound and Vision, the conference re-convened for a brief presentation of the TRE project and culminating in a sneak preview of RADIO.GARDEN the online exhibition developed by Studio Moniker in co-ordination with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and the Transnational Radio Encounters project that allows users to explore an interactive globe filled with radio’s past and present. 

Conference goers were presented with access to explore the RADIO.GARDEN further, as well as an opportunity, later in the conference, to plant their own seeds in the garden, by adding their own stories.
