Hi David,

My colleague Bethany Carland-Adams told me you have a list for your GSAS
fellows. Would you consider sharing these three events: Animated Tales for
All, and the two Zapotec-Style Painting Workshops (details below)?

Also, I invite you to check out the fall programs and new exhibits at all
four Harvard Museums of Science & Culture
If you’d like information or images to go with any of them, please let me

Animated Tales for All

Watch a vibrant collection of short animations narrated in some of the
sixty-eight Indigenous languages of Mexico. Created by Mexican designer
Gabriela Badillo and selected from her project, 68 Voices, 68 Hearts, these
films help foster pride, respect, and the use of Indigenous Mexican
languages. The family-friendly stories have English subtitles and are based
on legends and poems from native communities. The event includes a Q&A with
Badillo in English and Spanish, an authentic Mexican snack, and a chance to
learn phrases in one of Mexico’s Indigenous languages.

Family Event: $10 members/$15 nonmembers. Presented by the Peabody Museum
of Archaeology & Ethnology.

Adult fee includes up to three children (ages 3–18) and museum admission
