ABOUT US

Capturing and curating history for social good.

How much time do we give to really getting to know people around us, and especially those older than us?  What do we know about their childhood dreams, their favourite pastimes, what they were like at school and who inspired them to be the people that they are today? 

We all agree that the older generations are a fundamentally important part of our community.  But if we take the time to really get to know them, both our and their lives will be enriched. 

We bring stories to the community; through facilitated conversations and storytelling, we create intimate settings - safe spaces - for people to share their stories and experiences deeply and naturally.  We use parts of the stories we capture to promote and celebrate the history of people in the community.  We hope to inspire interaction across generations and preserve cultural heritage for the future.
