About Now and Then

From Now & Then
Jump to: navigation, search

Now and Then was an initiative of the Collections Council of Australia. The pilot implementation during 2009 in Mallala, South Australia, was funded by a grant from the .auda Foundation. The project was developed and is now managed by Sociable Technology.

Now and Then is designed to be used by communities large and small to record and share information about life in their places, both past and present. Following the sustained success of the pilot project, we envisage a growing network of Now and Then communities across Australia, sharing a common platform to promote the preservation and understanding of Australia’s cultural heritage.

Now and Then is built on the MediaWiki platform, the same software used for the world's most famous wiki, Wikipedia.

A new Now and Then wiki for the Town of Gawler was launched in May 2012 and in Willunga, South Australia in September 2012.
