Landmarks Illinois has partnered with the place-based storytelling platform Vamonde to share stories included in a recent video project produced in collaboration with Kennedy-King College students including the Kaskaskia Hotel, Hegeler Carus Mansion and Lock 16 Visitor Center in LaSalle, as well as the The Lone Buffalo in Ottawa.
The video project, “People Saving Places: Stories About the Importance of Place,” is a series of short films that feature local preservationists telling their own stories of preserving historic and special places within their communities.
These stories are now part of an interactive adventure called “People Saving Places in Illinois,” available for free on the Vamonde mobile app. The adventure uses video, text and images to take users on a multimedia tour of the eight communities highlighted in the Landmarks Illinois and Kennedy-King College video project.
The Landmarks Illinois Vamonde adventure “People Saving Places in Illinois,” is now available for free through the Vamonde app, which can be downloaded on both iOS and Android mobile devices.
