Abstract

The voices and stories of local communities help tourists to better understand the places they visit. Oral histories,
stories and community associations are also important aspects of heritage significance. These stories enliven the
presentation of heritage sites and create connections between past and present.
This project funded by the STCRC and Derwent Valley Council develops a Living Memory Interpretation Module to enhance visitor experiences at Heritage Tourism sites in Australia. The project develops a costeffective and manageable tool for communities to shape the presentation of their heritage. It also gives visitors access to community stories and allows them to record their own responses and experiences.
The project includes a suite of guidelines for the replication and management of the module at heritage
properties throughout Australia.
