The star project "Valais * Wallis Digital" invites you to commemorate Valais' bicentenary by building and preserving the collective memory of the "old country." It is a call to "dig up" your memories - pictures, movies, soundtracks or other files that "sleep" perhaps in an old box in the attic of your home - to digitize and share them with the community on the Valais*Wallis Digital platform.
In 2015, the canton of Valais celebrates the 200th anniversary of its entry into the Swiss Confederation. In order to commemorate this bicentenary, the State of Valais has launched a call for ideas to which the Idiap Research Institute, together with its partners, has responded by submitting the “Valais*Wallis Digital” project. The latter has been selected by the cantonal government in the “start project” category in March 2013 and is active during the whole year of 2015.
