The Heritage NL project, the “Oral History Roadshow” has received an honorary mention for the 2018 Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Community Programming.
The goal of the project was to capture the stories and memories of seniors, to share these stories with their communities, and make them freely accessible to the general public. The Oral History Night Roadshow saw Heritage NL travel to 10 communities to host Oral History Nights, conduct follow up oral history interviews, and create a series of community history booklets. In January 2019, Heritage NL public folklorist Terra Barrett was invited to Ottawa to attend the Canada’s History Forum, the Governor General’s Award Ceremony, and the History Makers Gala.
