History by Harris
History brought to life by Lianne Harris
Lianne will come to your location and bring a historical topic to life using period costumes and props. Both educational and entertaining, Lianne discusses history in a modern context.
What Does Lianne do in Her Presentations?
Mixing a little theatre with scholarly research, Lianne brings excitement with role playing to her presentations. Generally, they run about an hour and include a slide show with fun facts and anecdotal stories to engage people in the amazing twists and turns of the past!
Audience members are welcome to ask questions and Lianne makes herself available afterward to speak to those who enjoyed her engaging presentations.
And that includes DRESSING UP in custom and fashion from the time in history she is speaking about! The pictures you see of her on this website are examples of what she wears while speaking to an audience.
The authentic artifacts she displays, have been obtained from a number of reliable sources worldwide. (Psstt! Here is a little secret – she designs and MAKES many of her costumes and some of her artifacts!!)

Whether it is a school, classroom, auditorium, seniors residences, community group or event, Lianne’s brings her entire presentation along – both projector, costumes, props and sense of humour – with her to anywhere within the GTA area. Please contact her to get her schedule and available dates!
