Monument Quilt Workshop
Make a quilt square to add to the Monument Quilt!
Thursday, October 26, 2017 · 2 PM - 4 PM
While the Monument Quilt display was cancelled today due to what we thought would be a rainy afternoon, the planned quilt-making workshop will still go on! The new location for the workshop is the Women's Center.
Survivors of sexual violence and their allies, are welcomed to make a quilt square that will be added to the Monument Quilt project. Supplies will be provided.
More about the Monument Quilt:
The Monument Quilt: a public healing space by and for survivors of rape and abuse. The Monument Quilt is an on-going collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse. Written, stitched, and painted onto red fabric, our stories are displayed in city and town centers to create and demand public space to heal. The quilt resists the popular and narrow narrative of how sexual violence occurs by telling many stories, not one. The quilt builds a new culture where survivors are publicly supported, rather than publicly shamed.
