A world where every cultural organisation can engage and grow their community – to build understanding through stories. We collect, curate and structure stories to bring people together, one story at a time … and where it get really powerful is through the work we do to enable others.
We collect, curate and structure stories to bring people together, one story at a time…
Through our projects we bring communities together. We get people talking. About shared experiences. About their connections with each other. About the places they’ve lived, worked and played. About the history that’s alive in the buildings and spaces around them.
If you run our programme in your local café, library or museum you’ll unlock new connections and understanding. We can also help you present the stories on our interactive mapping platform historypin.org
Who is behind Historypin?
Historypin is a not-for-profit organisation.
Our team is in New Orleans, London and Sofia – and we support projects around the world.
What we do
We partner with cultural heritage institutions, civic organisations, councils and community groups to build stronger communities.
It has been great to have the energy the staff at Historypin brought to our work. The ideas that a third party brings to the table, opens avenues of thoughts and discoveries that wouldn’t have been thought about otherwise.
