The Musée des ondes Emile Berliner is honored to accept the 2020 Governor General’s History Award. The award recognizes individuals and organizations who deepen the understanding of the past by highlighting lesser-known stories, and encouraging meaningful public dialogue around history.

The museum has received the award for the project of the Centennial of Broadcasting in Canada. Specifically, the award recognizes the online presentation at radio.moeb.cafor the innovative, participatory and educational aspects of the project.

The MOEB reacted to the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic by quickly revising its schedule and offering an online adaptation for celebrating the centennial of broadcasting. The centennial activities will continue throughout 2021.

The project was developed by the Musée des ondes Emile Berliner with the help of the Société québécoise de collectionneurs de radios anciens (SQCRA). Both organizations collaborated with a number of partners for this project such as the Polytechnique Montreal, L’École de technologie supérieure (ETS), Carleton University, the Centre d’Histoire de Montreal, the Marvin Duchow Music Library of McGill University, the Association québécoise pour le patrimoine industriel (AQPI). The project benefitted from the financial support of the Government of Canada: Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage – Community Anniversaries, and from funds by the Trottier Family Foundation.

The MOEB wishes to express its gratitude to its partners and volunteers and would like to thank the Governor General’s Awards committees.
