About the Salon Participant
Sharon Sekhon is the Founder & Director of the Studio for Southern California History.
The LA History Archive (Archive) (www.lahistoryarchive.org) is intended to be an online site to instantiate the Studio for Southern California History's mission of critically chronicling & disseminating the region's social history. The Archive is slated for public launch in the Fall of 2009. Using a 3 pronged approach with a forum, educator resources & online database, the Archive will provide ways to integrate local history into their lives including multimedia primary sources & lesson plans. The Archive will invite visitors to contribute to and help shape best practices for doing & teaching local history. One of the long-term goals for the Archive is to change state standards for learning local history, which currently ends at the fourth or fifth grade.
The Studio for Southern California History is a nonprofit resource that hosts exhibits, walking tours & conversations centered on Southern California's history in order to foster sense of place. The Studio is located in Chinatown at 525 Alpine Street, Suite 103, Los Angeles, 90012. www.socalstudio.org
