This season, the Cardinals and Bally Sports Midwest are recognizing people and places pitching in to make a difference in our community.
Friday night during the pre-game, the Cardinals and Bally Sports Midwest gave a salute to Saint Louis Story Stitchers – a nationally recognized Artists Collective known for high quality art and innovative youth violence prevention programs.
This year Saint Louis Story Stitchers opened The Center, a 4500 sq. ft space for creative youth development in the Grand Center Arts District. Young people, age 16-24, may join the award-winning podcast program, StitchCast Studio, published on nation-wide podcast platforms. Story Stitchers artists perform music and poetry promoting St. Louis civic pride. Story Stitchers provides young adults with safe spaces to gather, friends that are anti-violence, mentors, and opportunities to speak out and earn money, while participants gain the skills to find productive employment and a healthy adulthood, proactively reducing crime.
Story Stitchers’ Senior Audio Producer- BlueBeatz and Teaching Artist in Audio – S. K. Banga, and 3 of the youth leaders – Malik, Zack, and Traydon were on the field with Fredbird, the Cardinals mascot!
A big thank you! to the Cardinals and Bally Sports Midwest for celebrating Saint Louis Story Stitchers.
