As part of the City’s 125 celebrations, the Vancouver Park Board has selected a team of digital media artists to work within the Vancouver community to capture the oral histories and memories of local residents. These digital stories will mark history and create a legacy of our diverse communities!
Be part of this unique project and share your story.
Digital Storytelling is the use accessible digital tools to let everyday people tell their own personal stories. Digital Stories are: simple videos that use recorded voice (in first person narrative), short in length (for this project approx 1-3 minutes) and illustrated with photographs, animation and limited live action. Some stories also incorporate sound and music.
Vancouver Stories artist/filmmaker Lisa g Nielsen and her team: Brian Lye, Suzanne Ahearne, Odessa Shuquaya and Lisa Walker will be collecting stories from May until September 2011. The team will work out of (but not be limited geographically by) 3 community centres: Britannia, Sunset and West Point Grey.
These collected digital stories will be will be archived on a website as well as amalgamated onto a DVD.
Every storyteller will receive a copy of the DVD!
The completed stories will be shared on large TV screens in the Community Centre’s living rooms and in Celebration Screenings across the city. This project will enable community members to see themselves reflected in their own personal digital imaginings.
