Hosted by Show & Tales

Show & Tale: Activists, Artivists & Archives
What have you been making/saving/keeping? Have you lost a loved one recently? How did/will you honor their life? Bring an object or photo to share your pandemic story. Or listen to others tale.

Show & Tell or Look & Listen.

In this life there are SO many ways to #RESIST. Do/did you, a friend, a lover or an ancestor keep mementos from those activist experiences? Do you or a friend/ancestor use art to lend support to a cause near and dear to your/their heart?

How are you documenting your time during the pandemic?

Pink pussy hats? Photos from the Women’s March you participated in? Signs from Black Lives Matter protests? ACT-UP fliers? Standing Rock protest T-shirt? Protest songs? Recipes? Postcards? Handmade posters, meeting notes, poems & other pieces of your/their archive that tells your/their resistance story?

Come across a photo of your great aunt at a rally for a women’s right to vote? Or find a suffragettes sash in your great grandmother’s archives? Newspaper clippings from an ancestor’s participation in the civil rights movement? Or a photo of you with your friends marching on Washington for gay rights & AIDS funding? Was a family member lost in the Triangle Factory fire or fought for worker’s rights after learning of these workers fate?

Show & Tale is like Antiques Roadshow meets The Moth, or your favorite Pinterest board come to life!

Everyone is welcome to share with a 3 minute time limit. No judges, no prizes, no competition. And no need to practice! Just come and Show your object and share its Tale.

Just want to come and listen? Awesome! Observers are always welcome.
