The Australian Centre for Oral History is using oral history for communicating between cultures and ages.
"Oral history may not always be factually accurate, but it brings its own truth to our understanding of how a culture has been made. It brings the kind of texture that raw facts cannot supply. And it brings an emotional dimension only possible when someone speaks in their own voice of their own experience." (Dr. Paul McGillick, catalogue essay for Cultural Conversations project, 2015)
