During February, the Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective will hold public events including a public screening of photographs and videos collected from community artists reflecting on the theme entitled Community Video Sketchbook and a participatory activity with Stitchers Teen Council and featuring guest artist and fashion designer Qristyl Frazier called Project Perception: A Reality Runway Show. MC Mr. K.P. Dennis and Ms. Frazier will guide the audience through a fun exploration of the relationship between perception and clothing through music, game, and makeovers using repurposed clothing from Avalon Exchange to consider biases people may form about individuals based on attire.
Perception Isn’t Always Reality is a platform for community engagement through an artistic lens, with it the Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective works to shift perceptions and realities and bring hope to our community. Join us this February at the Kranzberg Arts Center and become part of this vital project.
