“History lays the groundwork for strong, resilient communities. No place really becomes a community until it is wrapped in human memory: family stories, tribal traditions, civic commemorations. No place is a community until it has awareness of its history. Our connections and commitment to one another are strengthened when we share stories and experiences.” - from the Value of History Statement.
The Community History webinar series will share stories and experiences of communities from across Canada that have made significant efforts to preserve and share their local histories.
This webinar series will feature the community history project coordinators as presenters. They will discuss their community’s history and explain how the framework of their project brings relevance and awareness to this history. Presenters will also discuss the challenges they faced coordinating a community project.
This webinar series is inspired by the 10th Canada’s History Forum “Making History Relevant.” You can attend this history forum in-person at the Canadian Museum of History mid-November or watch the live stream from the comfort of your own space. Let us know if you want to receive more information about the history forum.
This webinar series will run from November 2017 to March 2018.
Webinars will be one hour in length, including time for a Q&A period with the audience. All presentations are free to attend and will be recorded and published on the Canada’s History YouTube channel.
