From the organizer

Join CounterPulse, Arletta Anderson & Adam Smith, and the Tenderloin Museum for an evening of oral histories and portrait-taking of Tenderloin residents, community members, and a few stalwart volunteers. In front of a live audience, interviewees will discuss their relationship to and memories of San Francisco and the Tenderloin and how these spaces have shifted their bodies and lives over time. 

Watch or participate-throughout the evening, attendees will have the opportunity to be interviewed while having their portraits taken. Oral Portraits is an invitation to reflect on living in an ever-changing landscape and hopes to capture a brief moment in participants’ lives through the simple acts of photography and conversation.
