Boston AIR is a program by the city of Boston- where, artists, community members, and City employees work on projects that help reframe social conversations. These artists explore the ways they can use art and media to improve and bolster City initiatives.
East Side Stories: An East Boston Traveling Community Quilt.
Follow me in the creation of a community quilt, that will encompass narratives from the East Boston community. This quilt will travel East Boston in the form of a quilt/dress that will get built during 2018, with the contributions of the community. This project will develop via Quilting Bees, which are gatherings meant to socialize with others to create a quilt together.
The quilt will then become a dress to be used as traveling performance art throughout East Boston.
