SOS Virtual Summer Soiree
July 22 @ 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm CDT
Join us virtually from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. Wednesday, July 22, 2020 for a free Virtual Summer Soiree (in lieu of our annual Summer Potluck) as we learn about one of our 2020 grantees, St. Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective. Their StitchCast Studio is the recipient of the SOS 2020 multi-year grant.
We welcome our members and guests to join us on a Zoom video conference call for an introduction to Story Stitchers. We will watch two short videos by Story Stitchers, and will then have a Q&A-style discussion with the organization’s Program Director, Emeara Burns, and their President and Executive Director, Susan Colangelo.
St. Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective is a group of professional artists and minority youth ages 16-24 who work together to create social change with a focus on gun violence prevention.
Stitchers collect stories, reframe and retell them through art, writing and performance to promote understanding, civic pride, inter-generational relationships and literacy. Projects create a platform for community engagement through an artistic lens. Through their projects, the St. Louis Story Stitchers work to shift perceptions and realities and bring hope to the community.
Follow StitchCast Studio, an amazing trip into the world of podcasts for 16-24 year olds living in St. Louis city neighborhoods! Visit www.storystitchers.org.
The formal program will run from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. Members and guests are welcome to remain on the Zoom video call after the program for casual conversation and networking.
Guests are welcome!
