Radio.Garden, the radio streaming and exhibition platform developed as part of the Transnational Radio Encounters project has been nominated for Webby awards in the categories of 'media streaming' and 'best streaming audio'. In the latter category, Radio.Garden is competing with Pandora and Spotify. The voting for the Webby Awards is open and must be submitted before April 20.
LISTENING WITHOUT BORDERS
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.
Radio Garden is developed as part of the HERA-funded European collaborative research project Transnational Radio Encounters (TRE), directed by Prof Golo Föllmer from the University of Halle (Germany) along with Dr Alec Badenoch and Prof Sonja de Leeuw from Utrecht University, Caroline Mitchell of Sunderland University, Jacob Kreutzfeld of Copenhagen University, Peter Lewis from London Metropolitan University and Per Jauert of Aarhus University.
