The Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization engaged in urban storytelling.
WHAT: The Collective commissioned St. Louis playwright and Story Stitchers artist in residence Lauron Thompson to write and direct the Saint Louis Story Stitchers first play, Not Another One! A Play 4 Peace. The play features original hip hop music by Story Stitchers artist in residence K.P. Dennis. The play is based on a youth-led discussion with police and civic leaders on gun violence. Topics such as trauma, legal rights, and police shootings were explored in an open and respectful manner. The discussion video is free for all to utilize. The discussion was transcribed and a book is now in production with foreword by Jason Q. Purnell, Ph.D., M.P.H., from Washington University’s Brown School of Social Work, due to be released in February, 2017. Not Another One! is dedicated to those lost and impacted by gun violence.
