Many communities have museums and historical/heritage societies abundant with amazing artifacts, wonderful exhibits, and incredible stories that reveal our shared heritage. But too often these organizations struggle:
very little public awareness and few visitors
not enough volunteers
younger generations not interested in local history
lack of financial support
Through TSVP's Local History Podcast Initiative, organizations can educate, entertain, and inspire the public. Using the technology of podcasting to promote local history via the internet gives these grassroots, community-based organizations new life, purpose, and a world-wide audience. Podcasts on the TSVP network have been downloaded in 70+ countries and all 50 states.
Through TSVP podcasting, local history organizations can:
promote fundraising activities
provide advertising/underwriting opportunities for local businesses and supporters
feature and celebrate exhibits, artifacts, and programs
announce and coordinate events
interview community members and historians
outreach to younger audiences on all major social media platforms
