Summary of Project

The importance of the stories we tell and the stories we hear is recognised in every culture. Narrative methods for the collection of data are increasingly used in research in the social sciences and humanities, which value getting to know people and cultures in more intimate and less distant ways. Creative modes of reproducing these collected biographies of oral history interviewing, videography and photography adds another layer for expression as well as accessing audiences who can experience and interact with the multi-media collections. Documentary production and interactive exhibition are powerful tools for researching and understanding cultures
