Save the Dates // The Chicharrón Chronicles

// public conversations // screenings // story-gathering //

The Chicharrón Chronicles is a cross-cultural story- gathering project in Historic Filipinotown, Los Angeles. Teasing out the bonds that can form over fried pork rinds (chicharrón/chicharon/cracklins) and a shared Spanish colonial history, the project invites community members to break bread and exchange and document stories about labor, language, and food during a series of public events. Attendees will have the chance to record their stories for the Historic Filipinotown Archive and for possible inclusion in a multimedia walking tour that illuminates the historical, social and cultural commonalities among the neighborhood’s multicultural community.
