S.T.I.C.H.E.D. (Pre-registration is required for the workshop)

S.T.I.C.H.E.D. is a story-gathering project that Climbing PoeTree started during their 2005 national tour. This incredible multi-colored tapestry holds more than 5,000 Stories, Testimonies, Intentions, Truths, Confessions, Healing, Expressions, & Dreams written by audience members and workshop participants Alexa and Naima have met across the nation. The magic of S.T.I.C.H.E.D. comes from declaring our truths, and baring witness to others'. When we tell our own stories, we reclaim the power to write our own futures. When we recognize ourselves in each other, we begin to dispell the myths that are created to keep us divided. Our goal is nothing short of transforming a culture of cynicism into a culture of caring. This project is one stitch in the patchwork of our collective liberation. More information can be found here: http://www.climbingpoetree.com/experience/projects/stitched/
