Oral Documentation Spaces and the Work of the Wathiqat Wattan Organization

Oral documentation has complementary and interlocking spaces at both individual and collective levels.

At the individual level, biographies are the basis for documenting in Wathiqat Wattan organization.

At the collective level, oral history encompasses entire societies (villages, cities, groups, institutions, elites, marginalized communities, important national events within a specified period of time), or topics of certain historical, economic, social or artistic significance.
In this sense, documenting oral accounts contributes to the building of contemporary history and participates in the formation of a national identity that is not limited to a written version of the event, but is also supplemented by recording contemporary testimonies of those who lived through and were affected by that event.

Therefore, the organization seeks to build documentation projects for the various spaces that ultimately contribute to the building of an integrated national archive that enriches Wathiqat Wattan by identifying, preserving and processing an oral heritage that forms an important part of our history and contributes to the development of a comprehensive national identity.
