March 20 Treasures Behind the Trinkets: What’s Your Story? A Pop-Up Museum of Travel
Join Local Flavor and the Black Dog Café and Wine Bar for a pop-up museum of travel, “Treasures Behind the Trinkets: What’s Your Story?” on Sunday, March 20 from 4-6pm (arrive at 3:30 to sign-in). This is a participant-curated, interactive event. Bring your trinket, we’ll give you a label for it, and then share your travel story with other travel curators.

All types of travelers - vagabonds, trekkers, seekers, adventurers, gypsies, nomads, day-trippers, drifters and strangers - are welcome here.




I really care about creating experiences in museums that facilitate social bridging - people connecting with other people who aren't like them. I want to create safe environments where people can grapple with their own perspectives, celebrate their communities, and learn more about one another and the things we all cherish.
