Local history has the power to enable connections between people and the places they live, work and visit. In order for people to care about these places, they must know the ingenuity, hard-work and determination that created their community, their way of life, or their business. They must know the forces of nature that for millions of years carved the lake, grew the forest, or created the natural resource that they use daily. We believe the best way to do this is through the personal narrative - through stories.
If you think your community has a story to tell, the Living History Multimedia Association is here to help you tell it. The goal of our “Ontario Visual Heritage Project” is to use emerging technologies to empower your community to tell its story. Together we will create a compelling multimedia starting point for the study, preservation and promotion of local history. The central component of each Project is a feature length, High Definition documentary on the history of a community or region, complete with re-enactments of historical events, interviews, historical photographs and film, 2D animation, 3D re-creations and original music.
