Loop It Up Savannah of the West Broad Street YMCA is bursting with pride to present the BELOVED COMMUNITY STORY QUILT PROJECT!
Over the past 8 months we have been working with Seniors, children, international college students and savannah locals of all ages on sitting down and opening up and sharing the stories of our neighborhoods.... stories were documented in writing and also in drawings, eventually we made some beautiful quilts that sum it all up-- good times and bad, food and where it comes from, childhood treasures, beloved family members and our ever- evolving neighborhoods.
The Children of the West Broad Street YMCA, Kayton Homes Boys and Girls Clubs and the Hudson Hill Community Center along with seniors from the City of Savannah Hudson Hill Golden Age Center have created 11 quilts so far! They will be on display at the Telfair Museum's Jepson Center for the Arts from August 10th- December 16th 2012!
We're making a book to tell the whole story. We need a little help to get it printed!
Making a book is the best way for us to share our stories--- to inspire other communities to take on this same project and to celebrate our unique and most beloved community.
