Heritage Near Me

 

PROGRAM:  Fellowship

PARTNERS:  Office of Environment & Heritage, NSW

DESCRIPTION: Working with OEH to develop a mobile responsive web app as part of the Heritage Near Me program. The app is an outreach tool, designed to promote and share the rich and diverse cultural heritage of NSW. Through rethinking the manner in which heritage listings are presented and harnessing the power of storytelling, the app creates a platform attempting to change the general perception of heritage.

As part of development, CfA created an online crowdsourcing strategy, allowing for the community to share their knowledge, passion and to allow people to become involved and have their stories heard.
