Claudia Wegener

Claudia Wegener founded radio contintental drift in 2005 as "a broadcasting house in the bag of a listener," an online amplifier of unheard voices, and a training vehicle, which could set up studio wherever tools and skills of the art of listening are needed and welcome. Together with local communities and organizations, radio continental drift develops and facilitates collective audio radio projects based on skills-training in audio-media, oral history techniques, and a creative use of information and communication technologies. Wegener is an associate member of the Transnational Arts Identity and Nation (TrAIN/UAL) and multimedia advisor and trainer at the Market Photo Workshop Johannesburg. - Excerpted from Radio as Art Concepts, Spaces, Practices(Columbia University Press: 2019)
