A CELEBRATION OF RURAL LIFE
A Celebration of Rural Life on CDrom has been created to promote the positive aspects of working and living in remote, rural locations with the intention of attracting and retaining professional people for communities in Far North Queensland, Australia.
A treasure trove of information, the CDrom provides an interactive environment for exploring two remote, rural Queensland communities: Cooktown and Croydon
Amongst a variety of choices, you may, for example:
The CDrom demonstrates that communities can gather, archive and publish local information in an entertaining manner using affordable digital media tools and skills. Production companies can be small, local and sensitive to local knowledge. Skills can be acquired that enhance a communitys ability to survive in tomorrows world, to take charge of the communitys image as well as to preserve and pass along valuable information for future generations.
A CDrom is capable of holding information equivalent to an entire encyclopedia (and weighs a lot less) or 600 high quality photos or 60 minutes of video or a combination of these as we chose to use in Celebration of Rural Life. CDroms can be replicated inexpensively in small quantities for niche markets.
Current technology provides affordable and challenging opportunities for local communities.
