20/52 Kenya – Tayiana Chao

Chao is a digital heritage specialist and overall history geek. After starting a history blog in 2012, she realised that the history she was taught growing up had significant gaps, was impersonal and had no room for personal stories and memories. Since then, she been doing various projects to document history/ culture through digital media.

You can find her project preserving Kenya’s antique railway stations at savetherailway.com

As part of the Museum of British Colonialism, Chao focuses on engagement, preservation and visualisation. She also runs African Digital Heritage and you can find her on twitter @ChaoTayiana.
