TimeCapsule

TimeCapsule
Team Name: 
Ballafornia Dreaming

Places change, always. The way they look, the way they feel, and the way we use them, remember them and imagine them.  What we value about a place changes too. What’s important today, was not so important yesterday. Who knows what will be important tomorrow?

But, what if your memories could last forever?  What if the value you see in a place could be seen by everyone else?  What if your places became our places?

TimeCapsule does this by creating a contemporary historical record, generated by citizens, used over generations.

By doing this TimeCapsule enables citizens and neighbourhoods to influence planners and decision makers, allows tourists and visitors to explore places the local community value and can connect these places with local stories that have contributed meaning and value.
