Arjun points us to Radio.Garden, a project created in the Netherlands, that allows anyone to explore the breadth and history of radio. The interactive exhibition offers broadcasts, jingles, stories Transnational Radio describes it like this:
By bringing distant voices close, radio connects people and places. Radio Garden allows listeners to explore processes of broadcasting and hearing identities across the entire globe. From its very beginning, radio signals have crossed borders. Radio makers and listeners have imagined both connecting with distant cultures, as well as re-connecting with people from ‘home’ from thousands of miles away – or using local community radio to make and enrich new homes.
I hope this exhibition comes to a place near me. Click on the image to activate Radio.Garden.
