Show & Tale: Brooklyn Battles
May 21, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm| Free
Brooklyn has a long history of battles, from the Revolutionary War, to classic playground games, to renovation and development.
Join us for Show & Tale’s special Old Stone House & Washington Park edition, and bring an object that reflects your Brooklyn Battle.
Do you have a Revolutionary War cannon ball that worked its way up into your backyard? Games and toys from your Brooklyn childhood? Objects found during your home renovation and restoration? Items purchased or passed on to you that reflect the history of your home? Every Thing has a story.
It’s like the Antiques Roadshow meets The Moth, or your favorite Pinterest board come to life!
Everyone is welcome to share with a 3-minute limit. No judges, no prizes, no competition. And no need to practice! Just show your object and share its tale.
Just want to come and listen? Awesome! Observers always welcome!
In recognition of May as Personal History Awareness Month we’ll be honoring 2 amazing personal history organizations: StoryCorp & Digital Diaspora Family Reunion!
