We've long been fans of Casey Kelbaugh's inventive and awe-inspiring Slideluck Potshow. Over the past decade, the traveling food and photography events have become a global phenomenon (we've even hosted one). The magic of SLPS—during which guests bring their favorite home-cooked dishes and gather to watch slideshows from novice and professional artists, documentarians, and photographers—is the way they turn the viewing of photography (and other media) into a event that you share with the people around you.

On Saturday, May 15, Slideluck Potshow teams up with the New York Photo Festival for its 15th event in the city. In addition to the SLPS's trademark slideshow and potluck dinner, this event will feature food and drinks from a number of Brooklyn-based farms, restaurants, and organizations—enough to put it in the running for the Guinness World Record for largest potluck ever. Tickets are available here for $10.

While we're on the subject, we should mention that we recently had the pleasure of attending SLPS's Los Angeles event "Women's Work," which was put on with the help of the women's networking organization Ladies Lotto. The show's many series spoke to various aspects of the contemporary female experience, and did so with grace, humor, heartache, and beauty. Take a look at a few highlights (including the top photo, courtesy of Mr. Kelbaugh) below.
