      • Program Description

        The "What Heritage Means to Me" Public School Field Trip Program offers groups of up to 30 fourth to eighth graders an interactive tour and discussion of The Heritage Collection: Photographs and Oral Histories of West Winter Park, a permanent, museum-quality exhibition of more than 100 framed, archival pieces that capture the lives of Winter Park’s African-American community. Also on display is the Hannibal Square Timeline that documents significant local and national events in African-American history since the Emancipation Proclamation.

        A discussion followed by a tour is led by a community historian. Then students participate in a visual art hands-on workshop, creating a piece of folk art based on their personal experience of tradition, heritage, family, community and country.

        1) How does this program increase a student's appreciation for and knowledge of the art form?:

        What Heritage Means to Me explores an understanding of individual heritage and cultural identity with a local historian and documentary photography exhibit. A hands-on art project allows them to express their personal heritage and how it is relevant to current life experiences.

        2) How does this program add to and support a school's curriculum?:

        Visiting the Hannibal Square Heritage Center takes the students into the learning environment where they can view photos and read personal stories about local heros and understand how everyone can make a difference. This experience is a real world window into the power of diversity and global connections.
