Digital Story Telling in Heritage

This summer, the National Trust is focused on telling new and diverse stories for Historic Places Days. Sites that tell invisible, or untold stories are our priority for this new digital storytelling opportunity. Place-based history is often limited by the physical remnants of communities and settlements, most of which are conserved because of their role in telling a dominant, colonial narrative. We aim to look beyond the established interpretations, to find and share the stories of the places and people that have been erased, or neglected. The selected sites will be paired with student experts to establish a custom digital experience for your site. Following the project, they would be used as high-end examples of the possibilities that digital storytelling can provide in a heritage setting.
