ST. LOUIS - April 11, 2022 - PRLog -- Watch and be a part of Story Stitchers live podcast discussions, presented on the Kranzberg Arts Foundation's Central Stage at 3524 Washington Ave. Story Stitchers artists and guest artists will round out each presentation with live art by some of St. Louis's leading black artists including spoken word poet and storyteller Cheeraz Gorman and Roland Johnson and Soul Endeavor!

Youth, ages 16-24, lead meaningful dialogues that inspire original content in mentor-led workshops based on participants' lived experiences in economically disadvantaged, high crime areas. Podcasts focus on the streets, gun violence, and finding solutions to issues that are coming at our youth hard. The project goal is to gain greater understanding of the needs and desires of the youth served and to give them an amplified voice to create needed changes in society, to support youth in a successful transition to adulthood, and to reduce youth crime in St. Louis. Youth artists use dialogue, adult guests, original poetry, and music to highlight their personal experiences with gun violence, life transitions, and mental health, promoting mutual respect for diverse ideas, greater understanding, and a more peaceful society.

StitchCast Studio podcasts are published and available on Podbean, Google Podcasts, apple podcasts, Spotify and Youtube.

ACTIVITY: Youth, ages 16-24 years old, discuss current topics in live podcast recordings on stage from 6:00-7:00 pm. Following an intermission, guest artists perform live sets. Learn about the community through the words of young leaders and get to know some of St. Louis's outstanding black artists.
