Description

We would like to invite you to “Threads of Change: Supporting New Stories” hosted by Story Tapestries in collaboration with Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union! This event will feature engaging conversation, tasty refreshments, powerful stories, and inspiring performances! Come mingle, eat, play, and awaken your creative spirit with us - and learn about ways to support your community through the arts.

Hear awesome stories of empowerment like this:

“The most fulfilling aspect of these sessions was watching young people come out of their writing shells...It was amazing watching formerly shy students become comfortable with not only recording their ideas but sharing them with their peers. Of everything we accomplished, I am most proud that we created a safe, nurturing environment - a nest from which these young writers were unafraid to test their writing and performing wings.”

  • Artist Bomani Armah, reflections from an after-school program with YMCA at Rock Creek Forest Elementary, Spring 2017

Story Tapestries is a world-class network of artists, educators, business and community members who are committed to bringing people together and empowering children and adults - especially those who struggle the most. We collaborate with educators, leaders, and families in communities in need to custom design arts-integrated programs to:

  • Directly impact children through in-school and after-school programs

  • Train and coach adults to be more effective leaders of learning

  • Develop parents’ understanding and ability to engage in their children’s lives
