Oregon Heritage Summit focuses on funding heritage

The Oregon Heritage Summit, April 26-27, is coming together to be a great event!  We hope you will join us in Newberg, at the Chehalem Cultural Center, to explore funding for heritage work in Oregon.

The first day will be a look at the big picture of funding for heritage. The goals of the day are to strengthen the network of people and organizations doing heritage work, consider broad solutions for funding, and provide input on tools the Oregon Heritage Commission can develop to help increase funding for heritage.

Donna Harris of Heritage Consulting, Inc will kick off the morning with a presentation of her national research on ways heritage projects are funded. Then we will hear from granting organizations about how heritage projects fit within their programs. You'll get a chance to talk with some of them. Next, we will dive deeper in to some models in case studies from around the state. We will wrap up the work part of the day with a discussion of possible solutions for Oregon, facilitated by Gwen Carr of Oregon Black Pioneers.

The rest of the day is for fun and inspiration!

Learn about three exceptional, student-led research projects funded through the Oregon Heritage Fellowship Program. Our emerging scholars will be presenting on Northern Paiute resistance to imprisonment at the Yakima Reservation, historic preservation of Oregon's statewide fish hatcheries, and archaeological digs at the Newell Creek and Buffalo Lake Sites in Silvies Valley. This groundbreaking session will be moderated by Eliza E. Canty-Jones, editor of the Oregon Historical Quarterly.
Then stretch your legs in downtown Newberg. You'll experience the historic places, flavors and shopping of this sweet example of our Oregon Main Street<http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/SHPO/Pages/mainstreet.aspx> Network communities.
Cap off the evening as we celebrate the winners of this year's Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards. We will recognize individuals, projects, historic cemeteries, businesses and organizations for outstanding efforts on behalf of Oregon heritage. Special guests include Bertony Faustin<http://www.abbeycreekvineyard.com/about.html>, proprietor of Abbey Creek Vineyards, who will share his experience documenting the stories of a growing community of fellow minority winemakers across the state.
That's not all. The morning of day two will be filled with workshops getting back to the basics of fundraising. We will address board development for fundraising, membership, annual appeal, crowdsourced funding, story-telling and more.
Registration will open March 20, for information on lodging, parking and registration visit OregonHeritage.org<http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/Pages/index.aspx> and follow the link on the home page.
