Telling the Recent Story of Past Realities
The project was born in Portugal out of a social concern: loneliness among elderly, specially in nursing home care.
By valuing their memories and knowledge, we collect life testimonials of how life used to be decades ago. They become sources of knowledge. History. The youngsters collect the experiences of the elderly, in a truly inter generational exchange.
All films and stories collected are available online, by topic, location and person, at http://arquivodememoria.pt/
