Community History Webinar Series
“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 shares stories and experiences of communities from across Canada that have made significant efforts to preserve and share their local histories.
This webinar series features community history project coordinators as presenters. They discuss their community’s history and explain how the framework of their project brings relevance and awareness to this history. Presenters also discuss the challenges they faced coordinating a community project.
This webinar series was inspired by the 10th Canada’s History Forum “Making History Relevant,” which was held on November 21, 2017 at the Canadian Museum of History. You can watch the recordings on our YouTube Channel.
This webinar series ran from January to March 2018.
