Orange County Archives in Action is a regional archives bazaar inspired by the Los Angeles Archives Bazaar. This free, day -long public event will bring libraries, special collections, archives, museums, historical societies, and other cultural heritage institutions together to showcase material from their collections and highlight the known and unknown stories of Orange County. In addition to exhibitors, the bazaar will include presentations from several Orange County community members knowledgeable about the region's history.
The goal of Orange County Archives in Action is to raise the profile of OC history and its cultural heritage to the public-at-large, as well as academics and independent researchers. This event will also provide an opportunity for regional cultural heritage aficionados to network and interact.
Local history will of course be a major theme for Orange County Archives in Action. We encourage exhibitors to display primary source material or surrogates at the event and provide information about their organizations. This will be a wonderful opportunity to establish your organization as a key partner in the development of this inaugural regional archives bazaar and undoubtedly lead to increased collaboration among our cultural heritage sites, and public knowledge and appreciation of OC regional history.
THE DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS SEPTEMBER 28TH !!
