She’s the unofficial Chief City Cheerleader for Fall River…


Welcome, Patti Rego to In-Focus Podcast Number 97. Patti Rego (She/Her) is the unofficial Chief City Cheerleader for Fall River, Massachusetts, and District Director of Viva Fall River.

Viva Fall River according to Patti, “is a movement and community-based commerce, culture, and creative economy initiative that works to showcase and celebrate the authentic and unique qualities that make Fall River a must-stop South Coast destination: arts, ethnic and cultural traditions, creative businesses, welcoming events, and, of course, our incredible food!”

Patti is also the Chief Content Curator at We Love Fall River, a social media movement she created to showcase positive stories about Fall River and its community.

Listen in on the conversation as The Artist Index’s host, Ron Fortier delves more into her life, work, and future ambitions. This episode was recorded with Zoom post-pandemic in 2021.

We will soon begin to offer the option to our guests of recording their podcasts in our studio at the Spectrum Marketing Group in Howland Place or via Zoom depending on the circumstances of the pandemic.

Although there seems to be an end in sight for the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will continue to podcast remotely, assisted by Zoom, to accommodate our guests’ schedules and to allow them to remain in the comfort of their homes.

The whole concept of The Artists Index and the journey we are on is are still in the making and very organic. If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
