The Association for Living History, Farm and Agricultural Museums (ALHFAM) and Look Around You Ventures (LAYV) are pleased to announce a new strategic partnership to create exciting and entertaining online educational videos about American history.
ALHFAM has been at the forefront of the growth and professionalization of living history techniques in museum programs, with members across the United States and in many other countries around the world.
Look Around You Ventures creates high-quality historic video programs through its current web series “Civil War Digital Digest” and “Revolutionary Gazette” (the latter scheduled for release in Fall 2020).
Combining the knowledge of ALHFAM’s member institutions with the attention to detail and high-quality production capabilities of LAYV, new videos will highlight the technology in use at the time of the American War of Independence and the United States Civil War. Our goal is to help students, teachers, re-enactors and history enthusiasts connect with American history, while they learn about the people who lived, fought and survived these conflicts.
Crafting connections and building interest in these eras will highlight the range of interactive opportunities the public can find at ALHFAM sites across the United States and around the world.
As museums and historic sites begin to safely open, watch for new episodes in both series to begin carrying the ALHFAM logo very soon!
