CALL FOR AUDIOS – How does your Heritage sound?

Do you want to be part of a Global Radio Emission? 

Heritage can be expressed beyond grand monuments, ancient shipwrecks or tiny pieces of pottery at the museum. Heritage is also sensorial. The sounds that surround our daily lives, the musical notes of a song, the words of a traditional poetry or of an interview. 

We are making a global call for audio and sound material that represents intangible heritage. Share with the world pieces of heritage from your site that are not always acknowledged. 

Both an archive and an experiment, the OWH Radio will be a repository of personal and collective memories that investigate the nature of heritage in individuals around different sites of the world.

Selected audios will be featured in our Radio Emission. We accept audios in any language and of a maximum length of 10 minutes. Send us 1 or 99 audios, use your cellphone or professional microphone… is up to you! Some examples of formats can include music, interviews, soundscapes, storytelling, nursery rhymes… 

We will use this material as part of the discussion in December Opening up to Civil Society and share it in our social media channels. 

Send the audio to our email: owhcivilsociety [at] or send us a message on our Facebook page CIE-Centre for International Heritage Activities.

Submissions extended to 30th November 2021
