About How to Build a Fire
The Puffin Cultural Forum is proud to present How to Build a Fire (HTBAF) a co-sponsored event between Open Source and The Puffin Foundation. Created over seven years ago, How to Build a Fire is a community storytelling series where a diverse group of individuals share real-life, personal narratives centered around a different theme each month. At times funny, at times sad, their stories weave together a broad illustration of the human experience. HTBAF takes place at Open Source Gallery – a welcoming, nurturing, intimate, safe environment – where, monthly, one can see a new exhibition installed by an array of up-and-coming and established visual artists. HTBAF will recur the last Friday of the month with a new storyteller and will be streamed live on Zoom from Open Source’s Brooklyn location. Please register in advance!
