As part of the NEA-funded “Parks Come Alive” project, a collaboration between Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and St. Louis Storytelling Festival, a variety of storytellers will showcase community reflections of what this iconic national park in the heart of St. Louis means to them. Featured will be the Arch Builders, Bobby Norfolk and other park rangers, Story Stitchers (an urban storytelling troupe), and school and community groups presenting community art projects. Reception follows. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
