Tech arts Training Program
Interactive Life Inventory Project

Teens and young adults use digital arts to help seniors share lessons they have learned from their life experiences.

This digital journalism project, sponsored by Wakulla County Historical Society with collaboration from Wakulla County Public Library and other local organizations, employs web technologies to showcase the personal histories and life lessons of our senior citizens.

Out of school youth will interview senior subjects and build multimedia portraits that tell the seniors’ stories in their own words. After posting online, the still images and kiosk versions will be displayed at our local schools, library and community centers. Portraits created during our pilot project, funded by University of Florida Shands Arts in Medicine program, are linked from the images below.

The next, start-up phase of the project is partially funded with a generous grant from the Capital City Bank Group Foundation and is scheduled to begin Feburary 2016 in Wakulla County.
