Sound upload for the World Day for Audovisual Heritage (27th October)
Wikimedia CH and the Département audiovisuel de la Bibliothèque de la Ville La Chaux-de-Fonds joined forces to celebrate the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage and the Year of Sound.
On this occasion, our GLAM Experte Amandine Cabrio led an upload from a selection from the Neuchâtel sound archives on Wikimedia Commons the 27th October 2022. Among these gems, recordings related to Radio-Hôpital, a pioneering local initiative that foreshadowed the arrival of local radio stations in the late 1960s. The files are freely accessible on the Wikimedia Commons multimedia platform in the following category: Category:Media contributed by Bibliothèque de la Ville de La Chaux-de-Fonds.
This upload took place among other events for the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage under the patronage of Memoriav, Switzerland's network for the preservation of the country's audiovisual heritage. For more than 10 years, Memoriav has coordinated the nationwide mediation and projects around the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage.
The SBB Historic Archives and Wikimedia CH organised a Wikipedia atelier the 5th November around the Year of Sound. Our GLAM Lead Sandra Becker gave an audio workshop and supervised uploads on Wikimedia Commons and edits on Wikipédia with our German community. On this occasion, sound files were uploaded on Wikimedia Commons and a few Wikipedia articles were created and/or modified. More information on the Wikipédia atelier on the Project page (in German). And the sound uploads are available in the following Commons category.
