Oral History Project

The Oral History Project

CAP is the only not-for-profit organisation in Pakistan that is building and maintaining an extensive digital archive to preserve our nation’s history and culture. CAP has focused its attention on the tradition of oral storytelling in Pakistan, emphasising the importance of such narratives in creating a platform for national memory. Since its inception, CAP through its Oral History Project (OHP) has digitised more than 650,000 photographs from private and public collections and has collected over 5000 oral histories. Our archive offers one of the most unique selections of photography and is the most diverse collection of oral histories in Pakistan.
