“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'”

— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Across the country people will celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day today. Story Stitchers work consistently and with a sense of urgency to answer his question. The Collective’s current work is focused on bias, gun violence, bullying and youth homelessness. This year our Stitchers Teen Council applied for a youth service learning grant to serve U.S. veterans.

Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective is a 501(c)(3) charity organization, dedicated to serving the St. Louis region through inventive arts and culture. The mission was set by the eight founding artists at the first gathering in August, 2013 at Northside Workshop in Old North St. Louis. The mission is to document St. Louis through art and word to promote understanding, civic pride, intergenerational relationships and literacy.
