The Poultry Party was a big success! Thanks to the amazing project leader Jeff Wright, and community event and exhibition developers Dawn Marie Knopf, Sarah Gilbert and Mary Rhode. Thanks also to everyone who came out, brought their chicken, and told a story. I hope to have photos from the photo booth area posted here soon. In the meantime, enjoy these that I took during the event. If you have any of your own to share, send them my way: zacharygough (at) gmail (dot) com. The video was recorded from a live feed of the chicks in the window at FieldWork.
Do you have a story to tell about a chicken? It could be funny, sad, hair raising or harrowing. Do you want to hear stories about chickens and have your photo taken with local poultry? Then we want you to be a part of this fun filled ‘Poultry Party’. We're looking for people to come tell stories about chickens for this open mic style event. Stories should be approximately 5-10 minutes in length and appropriate for all ages. All stories will be recorded and made available on a publicly accessible website. Local photographer Sarah Gilbert will be shooting portraits with live chickens. Bring your chicken in for a more personalized portrait session. If you forget or don't have a bird, we'll supply you with one for the photo shoot.
