Concordia University's Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling in Montreal, in collaboration with the Association of Parents and Friends of Victims of the Tutsi Genocide in Rwanda (Page-Rwanda), representing survivors of the 1994 genocide now living in Montreal, decided in 2016 to create a digital platform to share and explore 31video interviews with survivors.

Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (2016-2019), this research-creation project in digital humanities was an opportunity to renew collaborative research in oral and digital history, along with developing new ways of using and transmitting video archives of life stories.

This "living archive" platform responds to a great need to develop new methods of accessing, sharing, visualizing, mapping, listening and analyzing the recorded stories of survivors of mass violence.

Lavorel, Marie, and Michael Bourgatte. “Annotating Audiovisual Content: Story of a Collaboration Between Montreal and Paris.” Presented at the Scholarly Communities, Communication, Pedagogy, July 2019.

Led by Michael Bourgatte within the Digital Humanities Department of the Institut Catholique de Paris, a team or researchers considered the deployment of an open source annotation service that could be used by both research teachers and students. The result was the technology tool Celluloid, a collaborative video annotation platform.

Under the coordination of researcher Marie Lavorel at Concordia University in Montreal, a digital living archive platform dedicated to Rwandan genocide survivors living in Montreal was developed with the objective of creating and adapting technological tools to navigate, annotate, visualize, and map a number of video interviews.
