9/5: The Arts Street Textile Studio

Via Flying Kite:


Kathryn Pannepacker speaks in this video about the amazing work that came out of Mural Arts’ recently completed “Finding Home Project”, a textile mural devoted to the city’s homeless. For the past year, she and other artists created the Arts Street Textile Studio and Handmade with the Homeless. They worked in homeless shelters and cafes all over the city, guiding people in transition on how to weave and providing access and opportunities to learn, create and sell. This project was an amazing endeavor, and helped many individuals find their place in the community.
