Share. Collaborate. Exchange.

April 25, 2012

Oregon Heritage Exchange is a place to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and offer solutions to heritage problems. The idea of Exchange is to break down the “silos” that many heritage workers and enthusiasts exist in so that we can all understand better how heritage efforts can be interrelated and leveraged for greater benefit. But, this place isn’t about Oregon Heritage talking to you. This place is for you to talk to everyone.

At Oregon Heritage, we have a unique view into efforts taking place around the state that are connected to heritage in some way. We get to see how heritage activities can be intertwined and how the benefits increase when this happens. We want to share these with you, and we want you to share your efforts with us. But more importantly, we want you to share them with the heritage community.

Share, collaborate, and exchange away!

Exchange is open to all who work or volunteer in any heritage field in Oregon – museums, historic preservation, archives, historic cemeteries, local government, historical societies, and more. If you are involved in documenting, preserving, interpreting, or sharing Oregon’s heritage at any scale or level, we want your insight, questions, opinions, and solutions.

Oregon Heritage will be sharing what we’re doing from time to time, but we want to invite you to write short entries for Exchange too. An entry could be about a project you’re working on, a problem that you’re encountering and need help with, a call for collaboration, or a great success story. Just contact Cara Kaser (cara.kaser@state.or.us) with your ideas and to get setup.

So, let’s get started. What do YOU want to see on Exchange? Comments are now open.
