Story Stitchers erase real and perceived divisions through cultural exploration and arts practice — by stitching together our city.

Mission: To document Saint Louis through art and word to promote understanding, civic pride, intergenerational relationships and literacy.

Goal: Collective artists 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.

Curating Teen Voices: Coming of Age is a time capsule of teenage voices combined with adult artists living in St. Louis in 2015, all reacting to a critical and unique time in the history of race relations, gun violence, police roles and community relationships in the city of St. Louis, Missouri. Financial assistance for this project has been provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective is professional artists and urban youth ages 15-24, working together to create positive social change. Stitchers collect local stories and reframe and retell them through art, writing and performance to promote understanding, civic pride, intergenerational relationships and literacy. Story Stitchers are honored to be Artists-in-Residence at Kranzberg Arts Foundation in the vibrant Grand Center Arts District.

Projects create a platform for community engagement through an artistic lens and with it the Saint Louis Story Stitchers work to shift perceptions and realities and bring hope to the Saint Louis community.

A social enterprise based on publishing supports the mission. The content is the stories of St. Louis. Content collectors are youth and artists. Partners are cultural and educational institutions across the city. Products are indigenous stories retold through performances and publications. Customers are the public, youth, educators, and tourists. The Story Stitchers message is peaceful co-existence and mutual respect.
