Stitchers Youth Council members Chris, Arion and Jaquan create a chalk wall drawing highlighting themes in the Story Stitchers original board game entitled, TRAP LIFE: Where Teen Choices Matter for an art exhibition opening March 2nd at the Sheldon Art Galleries.
The game, on display and ready to be played, was created by Stitchers youth and artists and is an educational game that teaches strategic thinking for youth as they navigate urban life on their journey to high school graduation.
Join Story Stitchers for a Pop UP performance on opening night, sit down and play the game, watch a music video, check out youth art and writing and add your wish about public health in your neighborhood to The Wish Box!
