Show & Tales: Tails, Paws, Beaks & Claws

1:00 – 2:30 pmTPBCLAWS-WEB-ICON

Do you have a photo of a family cat that your kids named “Q-Tip” because it was jet black with a white tail? Did your partner rescue a puppy & bring it home and you have a picture of that first meeting? Did you save a cassette tape of your grandmother’s parakeet talking during Thanksgiving dinner? Do you keep your dog’s ashes in a special urn in your home or did you spread them in one of their/your favorite places? How about their water dishes, leashes or collars? All these and more can hold the memory of your loved one passed & present!

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll probably cough up a hairball at some point too.


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

Everyone is welcome to show their object/photo & share its story with a 3-minute time limit. No judges, no prizes, no competition. And no need to practice! Just show your object and share its tale. Period.

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


Think Show & Tell for grown-ups meets NPR’s The Moth, with a sprinkle of Antique Roadshow.


Show & Tale partners host story sharing events for individuals, families and organizations. Participants bring an item related to the event’s theme and share a slice of their history through the visual aid of their photo or object. The story behind the object is what makes it powerful, heartfelt, and relatable.

Our live interactive story sharing events help participants experience a greater sense of connectivity and community. Lasting connections are made with people that cross generations, cultures, races, and genders and whom otherwise would likely never have met.
