Show & Tale: Artifacts & Totems (NY Archives Week)

  • The 11th Street Bar 510 East 11th Street New York, NY, 10009 United States (map)

FamilyArchive is looking forward to joining our colleagues at Show & Tales & Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. for this NY Archives Week free event at The 11th Street Bar. Please mark your calendar for a lovely evening of storytelling!

From Show & Tale:

Join us to share a bit of your personal history through a significant object or photo. Show & Tell or Look & Listen.

Bring a photo or object from your personal/business history collection and share its tale in 3 minutes or less at our Show & Tales Happy Hour.

Did you keep your first business card? Or diploma? Or that napkin with the first notes about the business you have/are/thinking of creating? Do you have a favorite spoon(s), mug, pen, pair of boots?

Do you have a “lucky” piece of clothing you wear on important dates? Have you kept cards, letters & thank you notes you read over and over that make you feel like pushing ahead? A favorite recipe you make when you’re feeling down or like celebrating? Aprons, clothing, kitchen gadgets, photos, paintings, jewelry, tools.... You get the picture. Every Thing has a story©.

Bring these & any other object that has a story to show and tell.

Like Antiques Roadshow meets The Moth or Pinterest but in person.

And remember you don't have to show & tell... you can just look & listen. Get to know other ART community members through sharing a little bit of your personal history through a favorite object.
