Fort Vancouver Mobile Project Gets Special Designation

The Fort Vancouver Mobile Project recently received one of two national “Call to Action” designations. from the Fort Vancouver National Historic Sites (FVHS). This indicates the importance that the FVHS feels about its mobile¬†accompaniment.

The project was described in part as follows:

“A partnership between FOVA and the Creative Media and Digital Culture (CMDC) Department at Washington State University Vancouver, is utilizing the talents of student and professor digital artists and storytellers to create a free smartphone app that helps connect visitors to the significance of this national park. Recognized as a nationally significant program through the recent awarding of a NEH Digital Start-up Grant, it is in its second year of 1) utilizing the talents of students and professors in digital humanities and 2) engaging the digital humanities and arts community to connect the public to park stories in new, creative new ways.”
