Sesquicentennial Digital Time Capsule

The Digital Time Capsule uses today's technology to accomplish the age old ritual of preserving and documenting the present for the future.  This time capsule is a web-based submission, with access for all people to give their thoughts about the present. Click here to begin!

Stratford is well known for its digital infrastructure - its high-speed fibre optic and Wi-Fi networks that carry information on an ultrafast data pipeline.  So, in some respects, the Digital Time Capsule is a natural twist on an old ritual, in a city that is building and promoting digital media and innovative programs combining technology and business. 

The project is a way for residents to chronicle life in Stratford, their thinking about their lives and what they envision as a great future for Stratford citizens in 2067.  The Digital Time Capsule Project will be open to everyone from March 2 to July 1 2017, midnight. In everyday terms, for example, it's a way for 'Aunt Jean' to tell her story to her grandchildren or a way for school children to tell and show who they are and what they see in their future. 

The Digital Time Capsule with information from 2017 will be opened to the public in July 2067, using the technology and search engines of the day.  The written submissions will be printed out and stored with the Archives.

“Stratford itself is the type of walkable wholesome town Rodgers and Hammerstein might write a musical about.”
