The Kelvin Grove Urban Village (KGUV) is a diverse inner-city master-planned development in Brisbane, Australia, established through a partnership between Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and the Queensland Government's Department of Housing. The 16-hectare KGUV has been home to indigenous people, military and educational institutions, but very few residents. This chapter examines two phases of Sharing Stories, an applied research project that has brought together urban studies, public history and new media. It seeks to synchronise the various opportunities and challenges arising within each discipline in order to capture community memory, both past and present.
