Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective presents Peace in the Prairie, an original multimedia presentation exploring the concepts of peace and violence, juxtaposing urban life as experienced by African American people living in the city of St. Louis, Missouri and the state’s unique endangered prairie lands.
Peace in the Prairie is combines original music, discussion, and storytelling with videography.
Peace in the Prairie is unique to Missouri, generated by local artists and residents reflecting on loss and resilience in the human experience and rejuvenation in nature.
Peace in the Prairie expands the artistic body of work of African American artists in the Collective, addresses the community need of understanding violence while seeking peace, supports the exploration of new natural settings by both artists and audiences, and supports the greater understanding of Missouri’s unique natural heritage in its native prairie lands.
Celebrate Earth Day April 22, 2022, at the World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park with Peace in the Prairie. Community groups involved in gardening, native plants, birding, hiking, planting trees, and loving the earth or who can bring resources for victims of violence are encouraged to contact Story Stitchers for more information on getting involved.
Peace in the Prairie is presented with support from Missouri Arts Council, a State Agency, which receives support from the State of Missouri.
