Thematic annotation

In order to make the Ghent collection of dialect recordings also thematically accessible to the general public, the GCND team, together with Variaties vzw and Huis van Alijn, set up a pilot project in 2020, financed with a subsidy for cultural heritage work by the Flemish Government. During this project a standardized thesaurus was developed and 18% of the collection was thematically annotated. 102 recordings can now be searched through thematically via the website

On September 15 2021, this project was presented during a symposium on oral heritage.

The project is currently being funded by the Faculty of Arts (Ghent University).
