Capturing and curating history for social good.

How much time do we give to really getting to know people around us, especially those older than us or those from a different cultural background?  What do we know about their childhood dreams, their favourite pastimes and who inspired them to be the people that they are today? 

We all agree that diversity is even more beautiful than similarity, and that the older generations are a fundamentally important part of our community.  But if we all take the time to really get to know each other and take each other’s stories on as our own, all of our 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.
