When: Wednesday February 17 from 5:00 to 7:30PM

Where: The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) 2067 Bleury Street, Montreal

"Digital technology has redefined how we capture, preserve and tell our stories. The future of history is visual, interactive, and collaborative. Plank is showcasing three exciting projects that use digital media to both commemorate the past and connect it to the present. Our speakers will share the stories behind their projects and explore the opportunities and challenges in doing history digitally."

Ronald Rudin is a professor of Public History at Concordia University is Co-Director of the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling. The Lost Stories Project seeks out little known stories about the Canadian past and transforms them into inexpensive, site-specific works of public art. This process is documented through a series of short films. Along the way, forgotten moments from Canadian history are brought to light, and viewers have an opportunity to see the choices that have to be made when a story is turned into a work of art.
