The Wangaratta Digital Quilt Project was developed as part of the Generations Wangaratta Project. It is one of many initiatives established as part of the Generations project, which encourages storytelling and the sharing of stories from one generation to the next.
There are three components to the Wangaratta Digital Quilt including a series of films called Telling River Secrets, which conveys the relationships enjoyed by local residents both young and old with the local waterways.
The Quilt also features a series of short interviews with residents and visitors in the Rural City of Wangaratta who discuss what they value from the previous generations and what has changed since the time of their parents and grandparents.
The final series of eight short films captures in more detail the changes in the Rural City of Wangaratta from one generation to the next including the physical landscape and in the way people live and work in the region.
The Digital Quilt is currently offline, but will be available again soon!
