Leave a comment

Coming up on –

August 24:   Around the Table
Food Traditions & Family Stories,
with live entertainment by Pentimento Poetry Group & Patrick Weyland, Spanish guitar

Pentimento is a group of writers based in Dorchester.
In art history, pentimenti are painted-over images which reappear once the surface layer begins to fade. These ghostly images tell a story about the artist’s evolving thought process. “We as writers mine our pasts, imaginations, and experiences to uncover our own pentimenti, the images that we paint over and hide but which eventually resurface, one way or another. We come from different places and generations, but share a belief in the power of writing to challenge, heal, delight, and inspire.”

Fresh Fridays is an exciting series of Friday night events in Dorchester’s Meetinghouse Hill neighborhood with live entertainment, savory locally grown food and beverages, along with activities for children.

Join us in celebrating the essence of Dorchester through diverse voices, talents & flavors!
