ALMA - Every Object Has a Story - rough cut

ALMA - On Sep 28, 2013  Every Object Has a Story - rough cut - just the stories. Music by Choosian Ensemble Armenian Folk Music - "Pampuri Barr"Sincere thanks to the staff at ALMA; Gary Lind-Sinanian and Berj Chekijian and especially Susan Pattie for starting it all. You were all wonderful to work with and your museum is a fabulous organizaton.

Participants shared their stories about an object that is meaningful to them.  We asked "Do you have something that is your treasure - something you would never give away? Like a favorite childhood toy, a book, a photo, an article of clothing, a tool, a musical instrument, a trophy, or a memento like a letter,  ticket stubs or a program? Maybe it is something that hangs on your wall, sits on your mantlepiece, or is tucked away in a closet?  Perhaps you keep this because it embodies or is a "totem" for a time or person in your life, a place you miss, or something you hope for?

Every Object Has A Story  workshop - some of the questions... 

When and how did you first receive or encounter the object?

Who was there? 

What was the first thing you did with it?

What does it look like? color, shape,size

What does it feel like? texture surfaces - depth -  weight

What does it smell like? Is their a sound associated with it?

Did you know it was important from the beginning?

How did your object gain importance to you?

Has its meaning changed over time?

What event or person taught you the importance of this object?

What would you give to get this object back?

Next ?

If you had to give it to someone, who would that be and what would you say to them?
