Join Speak Easy on Zoom for TRUE STORIES, TOLD LIVE on Thursday February 4th, 2021. Our theme this month is KEEPSAKES (SHOW & TELL)! Do you have a piece of memorabilia that tells a story? Maybe your treasure tells a story about a loved one or a cherished memory? Did this object bring happiness or sorrow into your life? Like every month, feel free to tell any story the theme inspires. If possible, we’d love to see you “show & tell” your keepsake on webcam!
We’ll open up the “meeting” at 6:30pm for anyone who would like to tell or hangout before. To tell, you’ll need access to a webcam and audio (there’s a link below to test those features in Zoom). Stories start around 7:15pm.
If you’d just like to watch, you don’t need webcam/audio capabilities, and you don’t have to video broadcast if you’d prefer not to. Although I imagine our tellers would love to see your faces/reactions to their stories!
Everyone except the tellers and host are muted during stories to cut down on overlapping audio. However, you can jazz hands, thumbs up, visibly react to stories on webcam, or comment in the chat room.
**We will be recording the event and sharing it to our Facebook page afterwards. If you want to tell but not be recorded, let us know before your story and we’ll stop recording.**
Lastly, this is a FREE event! We want to keep meeting and sharing stories however we can.
