Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists CollectiveFounded in 2013 and incorporated as a public charity in 2014, Saint Louis Story Stitchers meets weekly with African American youth ages 16-24 from economically disadvantaged neighborhoods and has presented publicly over 75 times since 2013 to diverse audiences of 9,000. Saint Louis Story Stitchers current focus is aimed at addressing pressing public health issues including gun violence through contemporary storytelling. Projects create a platform for community engagement through an artistic lens and with it the Saint Louis Story Stitchers work to shift perceptions and realities and bring hope to the Saint Louis community. Saint Louis Story Stitchers are artists in residence at Kranzberg Arts Foundation in Grand Center Arts District and run a Storefront Studio in the historic Loop District at 616 N Skinker Blvd. The Collective performs and presents to the public in parks, community centers, schools and cultural institutions throughout the region. “The Story Stitchers are a fantastically talented collective of artists and youth in St. Louis working to document the communities they live in.” — Lisa Overholser, Director, St. Louis Storytelling Festival
