Spillingthebeans CELEBRATES LIFE STORY EXPERIENCES

Spillingthebeans MAKES PERMANENT RECORDS OF PERSONAL STORIES AND REMEMBERED HISTORIES

 
EVERY HUMAN ‘BEAN’ EMBODIES A PERSONAL STORY.

Sharing stories is an ancient way of connecting generations and communities with their ancestors. Before human ‘beans’ learned to read and write, telling stories was the only way to pass on knowledge. Even today, in our sophisticated digital world, stories are important because stories are how we interpret our world, and how we connect.


 WHO IS THE STORYTELLER IN YOUR WORLD?

In most families, at least one elderly relative has been telling stories for a long time. Sadly, this rich family history resource is only recognised when it’s too late, because no one thought to record the relative’s stories.

In communities, elderly members embody the social history and development of organisations. Their experiences form a unique social legacy.


Spillingthebeans WILL MAKE A PERMANENT RECORD OF THESE STORIES

Our experienced oral historians will lead each storyteller through the process of making a permanent record in the form of a digitised voice recorded heirloom. This heirloom is the storyteller’s legacy. It connects his or her past with the present and future.
