Broadway and Back - Interactive Tour
"Broadway and Back" is an interactive video walking tour where you can explore Yorkton's historic old town centre. The tour functions closest to an audio tour. It brings an in depth approach to history merging two time periods through a video lens while experiencing the current reality of downtown. Participants experience history merging with contemporary life through video and archival photographs and onsite experience. It creates a true appreciation of how much a community can change in a short period of time, yet have some aspects remain the same.
This event is free.
