A CLEARING and Tender Table are getting together to host a food + storytelling event at CÔNG TỬ BỘT in Portland, ME on Tuesday, August 6, 4pm-6pm.


A CLEARING and Tender Table present an evening immersed in food, storytelling, and art. Join us for delicious food and stories by Asha Tamarisa, Cassandra Loftlin, and Evelyn Wong and artwork by Chelsea Ellis, Kelsey Halliday Johnson, EA Kane, Maia Snow, Stephen Straton, Jessica Townes George, and Lavennz Ooi. 

This first-time collaboration with Tender Table—a storytelling platform featuring women, trans, and nonbinary folks who are black, indigenous, or people of color—expands on this year’s A POSSIBLE PRACTICE by inviting you to experience intimate storytelling and home cooked food that is rooted in memory, identity, and community. Hosted in Cong Tu Bot, this evening savors the delicious contrast that rises when art enters a non-traditional art space and non-restaurant encounters fill a dining room.

We suggest a $5-$10 sliding scale donation at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Your donations directly support the artists who contribute to the series.

All are welcome. See you there.


Support for A CLEARING X TENDER TABLE, part of A POSSIBLE PRACTICE 2019, is provided by the Kindling Fund, a grant administered by SPACE as part of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Regional Regranting Program.
