We 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.

The Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective is professional artists and urban youth grades 7-12, working together to create positive social change. We collect local stories and reframe and retell them through art, writing and performance to promote understanding, civic pride, intergenerational relationships and literacy. We are artists-in-residence at Kranzberg Arts Center in vibrant Grand Center.

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 our mission. Our content is the stories of St. Louis. Our content collectors are teens and artists. Our partners are cultural and educational institutions across the city. Our products are indigenous stories retold through performances and publications. Our customer is the public, youth, educators, and tourists. Our message is peaceful co-existence and mutual respect.
