Honor the Past, Explore the Present to Shape the Future
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit At the Orange County Regional History Center, we believe that our rich and colorful past is the foundation of the future. We work with the conviction that our greatest leaders and citizens were inspired by those of the past. Our role is to give voice to their stories-both the great and the commonplace. For us the inspiration of history is a thoughtful instrument that ensures broad understanding of what community means and how history touches all of us. We use the common experiences to invite others in and tell stories that enlighten, uplift, and inspire others to build a better Central Florida for today and for the future. Our intention is to link history to the events of today and use this bond to strengthen the sense of connection in the region. According to Culture Builds Communities, participation in arts and culture is an effective tool in building strong neighborhoods, characterized by active citizens and young people armed with the skills they need to become young adults who contribute to the area surrounding them; Developing programs and exhibitions that not only look back but also look forward offers us the opportunity to initiate dialogues that spur open discussion and lead to solutions. By using history to address the pressing issues of our region and of our day, we can create and host programs that engage the public and foster efforts to build community and support neighborhoods in ways that encourage residents' involvement in the broader region. The History Center seeks to become a catalyst for getting people involved in their neighborhood, and gaining an understanding of the heritage of their region, while developing and reinforcing the sense of ""place."" We emphasize the importance of history in our daily lives through events and activities for Central Florida residents and tourists from around the world. Our curriculum-based educational programs reach more than 40,000 students each year at all levels of formal education. We do good work.
