Peace in the Prairie Spotlight on Perennial!

Perennial is one of our favorite STL nonprofits! Artists teach people creative skills to upcycle materials and live a sustainable and self-sufficient life. They offer craft and DIY classes using all salvaged materials and provide free programs to community partners. At Peace in the Prairie, perennial’s table will invite guests to create your unique buttons using reclaimed materials. You’ll be encouraged to make images about what peace means to you with fabric and paper and turn them into a button you can wear or share!

Pre-order your boxed picnic dinner from Sugarfire on Eventbrite and join the artists at community tables immediately after at 7:00 for the main performance and film screening.
