PUBLIC PRESENTATIONS

 

PEACE IN THE PRAIRIE

Is the path towards peace through Missouri’s endangered prairies?

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.

Additional support for Saint Louis Story Stitchers is provided by The Lewis Prize For Music, the Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund, City of St. Louis Youth at Risk Crime Prevention grant of 2020, March For Our Lives, and Kranzberg Arts Foundation.

Watch and be a part of Story Stitchers live podcast discussions, presented on the state-of-the-arts stage of 3524 Washington Ave. Story Stitchers artists and guest artists will round out each presentation with live art interludes.

Youth, ages 16-24 years old, discuss current topics in live podcast recordings on stage. Live art interludes are incorporated into the presentations. Learn about the community through the words of young leaders.

Youth, ages 16-24, lead meaningful dialogues that inspire original content in mentor-led workshops based on participants’ lived experiences in economically disadvantaged, high crime areas. Podcasts focus on the streets, gun violence, and finding solutions to issues that are coming at our youth hard. The project goal is to gain greater understanding of the needs and desires of the youth served and to give them an amplified voice to create needed changes in society, to support youth in a successful transition to adulthood, and to reduce youth crime in St. Louis. Youth artists use dialogue, adult guests, original poetry, and music to highlight their personal experiences with gun violence, life transitions, and mental health, promoting mutual respect for diverse ideas, greater understanding, and a more peaceful society.
