Raising Historical Awareness Through Collaboration: A Model to Celebrate Regional History and Preservation of Historical Assets

EC-CHAP - A Framework for Raising Historical Awareness.jpg

We believe there is a tremendous collection of knowledge and rich resources available in our region and across the state just waiting to be uncovered – dusted off, organized, and shared publicly. We believe many historical entities are faced with limited resources, limited outreach, and as a result, typically operate as individual “silos” of information and collections of artifacts. Imagine if there were structured opportunities to collaborate with others to share information, oral histories, and artifacts, leading to exhibits, programming and more!

If you are an historian, a member of historical organization, a researcher, an academic, or an interested individual willing to share information and engage in dialog to raise awareness of relevant history and preservation, please join us.


Historical organizations, historians, and interested individuals
