Share your Heritage Story!

We'd love to hear from you! 

CSC & APQ have teamed up to present #AmericanPatchworkProject.  This digital and social media campaign is designed to open dialogue  acknowledging our differences to discover our commonalities.  Leading up to the concert presentation CSC will be collecting heritage stories to be shared digitally across CSC social media platforms. 

What is heritage?  A heritage is a person's unique, inherited sense of family identity: the values, traditions, culture, and artifacts handed down by previous generations.  It can be an ethnic, cultural, or national identity.  It can be values that have been passed on or even a sense of inherited aptitude. Whatever you think is part of your heritage we would love to hear about it!  Feel free to share as much or as little as you like.

If you would like to participate you may submit your heritage story directly to our google drive form using the button below or e-mail your heritage story to  Heritage Stories may be submitted in video format (preferably) or text/document format.  If submitting an electronic document we recommend providing pictures to accompany the written story.  Submitted heritage stories will be featured on CSC's social media platforms; Facebook, Instagram & Twitter as well as on this webpage.

CSC will also be hosting (3) film days for those who may want assistance with a video.  You may stop by the Lackland Center Wednesday's January 5, 12 or 19 between the hours of 1:00 - 5:00 PM and a CSC staff member will be happy to assist you.  Submissions will be accepted now through January 21, 2022.
