Add your narratives to the objects
Your knowledge about the objects is vital to us. With your stories we can put these objects in their original context. When you create an account you can tell your story about these objects, use communities and create lists.
Every culture can start its own community on this platform. A community can create lists of objects that tells stories about their history. Communities can also add narratives to the objects in this collection.
Here are some communities to inspire you. Or take a look at all the communities.
Community of Gelderland
