    In community archives across British Columbia, local knowledge keepers are hand-fashioning a more inclusive history. Through a collage of personal interviews, archival footage and deeply rooted memories, the past, present and future come together, fighting for a space where everyone is seen and everyone belongs. History is what we all make of it.

    *************************************************************

    Dans les communautés de la Colombie-Britannique, des gardiennes et gardiens du savoir s’appuient sur les archives pour façonner une histoire plus inclusive à l’échelle locale. Grâce à un collage composé d’entrevues personnelles, de plans d’archives et de souvenirs profondément enracinés, le passé, le présent et l’avenir se fondent pour faire émerger un espace où tout le monde est visible et où tout le monde a sa place. Car l’histoire devient ce que, ensemble, nous en faisons.
