About the Saint Louis Story Stitchers

Saint Louis Story Stitchers work to document the city through art and word to promote understanding, civic pride, intergenerational relationships and literacy. Collective artists in the program work alongside twenty 15-24 year-old urban youth living in economically disadvantaged areas to collect stories, reframe and retell them using the arts, direct community engagement, storytelling, publishing and the Internet to promote a better educated, more peaceful and caring society.

The performance is sponsored in part by the St. Louis Storytelling Festival, Community Arts Program at the University of Missouri Extension, through a grant by the National Endowment for the Arts.
