The Austin Digital Heritage Project(PDF) is a growing coalition of for profit and non-profit partners that leverages E4 Youth’s Creative Leadership Academy and immersive storytelling curriculum practices to promote digital and cultural literacy throughout the community. College age youth work with industry professionals in immersive media and technology to collect and curate oral histories of Austin’s older residents of color into a virtual archive.

In the coming year, we will:

  1. Train and employ 40+ youth of color
  2. Collect and curate 150+ oral histories of older residents of color
  3. Host multi-generational events that celebrate and explore the histories of people of color in Austin

*This program is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Grant for Technology Opportunities Program.
