Last Fuller Terrace lecture night on Tuesday 

Fuller Up: this year's north end backyard lecture series ecourages people to tell personal stories.

Bethany Riordan-Butterworth and Ella Tetrault opened their Fuller Terrace backyard to the public this summer, as hosts of a lecture series aimed at getting to know people.

The idea originated with Vince Perez and Emily Jones several years ago and focused on art and academics. After the pair moved, Riordan-Butterworth and Tetrault continued the series, under a different focus.

"We wanted the lecture series to be a venue for members of our immediate community to exchange ideas and experiences," Riordan-Butterworth says.

They've held five lectures, filling the yard with a live Halifax version of programs like National Public Radio's This American Life.

"Although this is a small city and it's easy to see people often, there are so many things about people's histories we don't know," says Tetrault. "Small, personal stories help us to discover these things."

The series' final summer lecture is Tuesday, August 18, 9pm, 2664 Fuller Terrace, with the theme of family, school, moving and travel.
