From Oregon Heritage
What do we hear in the word “pioneer”? What does the word mean to you and your organization, how does it echo, and what are the impacts of using it in your work?
A presentation at the 2019 Oregon Heritage Summit, recent action on pioneer statues and memorials, and more understanding of the complexities of the term have lead Oregon Heritage to offer a conversation for people working on Oregon history.
We all care about Oregon history and want to share it. This online participatory conversation will pick up the themes and energy of the overflowing summit conversation. It will provide an opportunity to connect with peers around the state and to think together about heritage work. It will also prepare the way for conversations you may want to have within your organization and with your audiences and community partners about different perspectives on the term and the work.
Adam Davis, executive director of Oregon Humanities, which has been running Connect in Place and the Conversation Project for many years, will partner with Oregon Heritage in designing and facilitating this session. Register in advance to join the free conversation online March 10, 3:00-4:30pm.
