Sabrina Artel’s Trailer Talk

Big Conversations from a Little Trailer

Trailer Talk is a live performance, a community event and a broadcast. I drive my vintage camper to Main Streets, festivals and events. People step inside, I welcome them with homemade brownies and we sit down to talk over the kitchen table. I also share the portable kitchen table which expands outside the trailer itself to engage in conversations at additional sites. Its goal is to bring attention to important issues where least expected, on the streets and in people’s neighborhoods. At Trailer Talk events, the kitchen table represents the democratic tradition of public dialogue that values the coming together of diverse and often opposing voices to create common ground and inspire social change.

Even though my 1965 Beeline trailer is tiny, its kitchen table is large enough to seat “One third of the Nation,” so please come on in and join us for this traveling salon and portal of possibility.

“Live on the road, from the kitchen table, from my neighborhood to yours.”

The half-hour radio show broadcasts on WJFF Radio Catskill in Jeffersonville, NY; Geneva Community Radio in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State; Glimmerglass Radio in Otsego, NY (also in England, Australia and Japan); KWMR in Point Reyes Station, CA; WFTE in Scranton, PA; and WXPI in Williamsport, PA.
