Memento Media and Moreland City Council presented ReCollection at the Coburg Carnivale as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. ReCollection celebrated, shared and captured memories of Moreland’s places, history and faces.
The installation showcased oral history based documentaries and a range of printed local historical material which helped attendees learn about local history and take a trip down memory lane. It was presented in an accessible and down-to-earth format, aiming to engage new audiences in their local history as part of the 2017 Melbourne Fringe Festival.
The specially-built ReCollection Recorder provided a means for locals add their own stories to the collection.
After the event, the documentaries were shared online where they sparked further engagement and interest in local history.
