Snapshots of Australian History

Digital Storytelling Collection- Snapshots of Australian History




A collection of user generated stories and first person accounts of Australian life and the historical landscape of Australia, told through the use of multimedia tools. Contributors have combined material from their own personal archives of audio visual material (photographs, video footage, text, music and sound) to produce a 3-4 minute personal story which they have then narrated. This collection contains approximately 50 titles and dates from 2001.

These stories explore many themes and raise various issues related to aspects of Australian history. Themes often become clearer if you try to answer a specific question. It can be interesting to ask yourself a question from a personal perspective, such as: 'Where are my family and I placed in Australian history?' or 'How has my family witnessed change in Australia's history?'.
