Calling Hyde Parkers and South Siders, past and present: Join a virtual guided tour of the South Side Home Movie Project’s digital archive, and discover new ways of activating and preserving community knowledge through home movies. What year was that parade? What high school band was leading it? Do you recognize that beach? Help SSHMP fill in missing dates, locations and names, and collect background stories that fill in context. Jog your memories and join our efforts to provide both cultural and geographical reference points in the films, and to collect anecdotes as well as facts.
