Local Content – Local Stories

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Offer your community what Amazon cannot – unique, local content.  Whether working with community members to create oral histories, partnering with organizations that have a treasure trove of local content, or collaborating with local artists to create a go-to place for local music, we will explore ways to connect your community with truly one-of-a-kind resources not available anywhere else.  We will discuss the various ways we have provided a forum for letting our communities tell their own story, and built invaluable relationships and connections in the process.
