In partnership with Groundswell and AHHAH (Arts Holding Hearts and Minds), we will be hosting a FREE SBYF Memory Writing Workshop on Thursday, August 29th, from 4:30-6:30 PM at The Free Library of Philadelphia.  Come join us!  Our theme is “summer memories” and our team of skilled memory collectors will help you to unlock those happy, suntan-scented memories lost deep in your brain.  After the workshop, all the postcards will be archived in the SBYF memory vault for future generations.

Can’t make it?  We’ve got you covered.  Just mail your summer memory on a postcard to:

1315 Walnut St.
Suite 732
Philadelphia, PA 
19107

…and your memory will be exhibited with all the others we’ve received.

This is exciting because besides exploring summer memories across many decades…we’ll also be exploring summer memories across different neighborhoods.

Also, please contact us if you are interested in joining a memory writing workshop at any of the following locations, operated by the brilliant folks at AHHAH.
