During the spring semester of 2010 and again in 2011, students in MLL 495/695 Intercultural Video Production worked with residents of Arbutus and surrounding communities on a collaborative video project. In “Arbutus Stories” residents reflect on their life-long association with the community through digital stories. Each resident teamed with a student to create short movies combining photos and other imagery with recollections of people and places.
The project was conceived as a celebration of the opening of the new Arbutus Public Library in September, 2010. The videos are on display on kiosks throughout the new space.
