Saint Louis Story Stitchers is pleased to announce that we have received an Arts and Education Council Award for a PNC Program Grant for Pick the City UP which broadens and deepens participation in and access to the arts in underserved, predominantly African American neighborhoods, with podcasts and Zoom activities.
Saint Louis Story Stitchers documents St. Louis, Missouri through art and word to promote understanding, civic pride, intergenerational relationships and literacy. A core creative group of professional artists and African American youth, ages 16-24, generate original work through a unique form of “urban storytelling” that includes hip hop, spoken word, photography and videography and disseminate new works through public presentations and performances. The Collective’s current body of work focuses on gun violence prevention and topics related to public health issues.
