The People’s History Project (PHP) aims to gather first-hand interviews and documents related to social movements in Guelph, and to create a well-organized, public archive. The PHP aims to preserve the stories, experiences, and histories surrounding the Guelph community’s important role in the broader social movements of our time and in local struggles which have captured past imagination.
