Create a world where empathy doesn’t stop at political and geographical borders

Open History Project is an international oral history project that aims to create a multilingual database of interviews with historical and eye witnesses. Contemporary oral history is preserved and political and social events are documented.

We are creating a network of community builders that actively promote community participation, freedom of speech and opinion, and access to a diversity of views. We want to promote the unheard voices, as well as broaden the range of discussion and present alternative views to social issues.

LEARNING THROUGH FIRST HAND EXPERIENCES

Bring language and culture of the world to your classroom.

Open History Project provides intercultural educational opportunities. We developed a interactive workshop for school classes and youth groups to learn about the importance of history and the role of media in covering – or not covering – stories.

Students are introduced to the idea of citizen journalism and get set up with the skills to conduct their own oral history project in their local communities. The workshop encourages active citizen participation and helps to document local knowledge and history.

Let your class get connected to an international network of storyteller!

PRESERVING LOCAL HERITAGE

Our communities are full of historical witnesses and local experts – a heritage that is too often forgotten. Open History Project helps your community preserve local knowledge and experiences for future generations. Young and old work together to discover a past that should be preserved for future generations – active citizenship and multi-generational encounters bringing your community together.
