Re-Creating the Future By Rewriting Our Histories
S.T.I.T.C.H.E.D. surges from the collective wisdom and collaborative power of our communities. A growing tapestry of Stories, Testimonies, Intentions, Truths, Confessions, Healing, Expressions, and Dreams that Climbing PoeTree has collected and stitched together from more than 5,000 audience members and workshop participants across the country. The magic of S.T.I.T.C.H.E.D comes from declaring our truths, and bearing witness to others’. When we tell our own stories, we reclaim the power to write our own futures. When we recognize ourselves in each other, we begin to dispel the myths that are created to keep us divided.
