Hands on Heritage is partnering with South Williamsport on a unique project, using collaborative storytelling and listening to connect people to what’s important in their hometown, leading to positive change in their community.
Storytelling enables people to focus on the most important aspects of their community — the people, places, events and organizations, both past and present, that helped build their hometown. The acknowledgement and acceptance of these stories creates a sense of shared belonging, leading to renewed engagement on social, cultural and economic levels.
By connecting with and caring about your neighbors, your community can build a foundation of hope that leads to improved decision-making and relationship-building, resulting in a town everyone loves, and where everyone wants to live.
People care for what they love. Make them love their hometown with collaborative storytelling and listening. If you want to know more about the South Williamsport Area Historical Collection and its community project, visit its website today.
