Oral History Victoria Innovation Awards 2015

The YCW Archive and Research Centre are pleased to announce that the first release in our Documentary Project has received an Commendation in this years Oral History Victoria Innovation Awards 2015.

YAY US!

Extract from Oral History Victoria:

COMMENDED: Melissa Walsh and Judy Hughes
The Road Safety Campaign 1967-1972
YCW Archive: The Road Safety Campaign 1967-1972

What an original and effective use of oral history from the Young Christian Workers Archive. This is innovative and effective in several ways: using oral history to illuminate the role of the YCW in a transformative social and political campaign about road safety in the late 1960s, and a YCW learning and activist approach that is still relevant; combining extracts from interviews with animated film to create a well-crafted and engaging video output; placing that video on YouTube to reach younger audiences. The use of animation is especially innovative and effective.
