The Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective is professional artists and inner-city youth ages 14-24, working together to create social change with a focus on gun violence prevention. Stitchers collect local stories, reframe and retell them through art, writing and performance to promote understanding, civic pride, intergenerational relationships and literacy. Story Stitchers are artists-in-residence at Kranzberg Arts Center in vibrant Grand Center and run a Storefront Studio for publishing at 616 N Skinker Blvd. in the hip Loop District. 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.
