Stories play a major role in the preservation of Rotterdam’s heritage. DIG IT UP is supported by the Erasmus University Rotterdam, as a result of their ‘stories in motion’ project. 

 

The recording of stories will be given an even greater impulse by the oral history booth to be set up. From June 2021 until September 2022, visitors will be able to tell their stories and anecdotes about the subjects of DIG IT UP without contact. These stories will then be shared in the database and on the website of DIG IT UP.

 

Director Simone da Silva is pleased with the support of the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds. “I expect to be able to attract and train new volunteers. And above all to perform our core task, the recording of Rotterdam’s city culture, even more successfully.”
