SUNDAY APRIL 14 @ 1-4pm
Join the PO Box Collective and artist Rachel Wallis for an Inheritance Community Quilting Circle. Inheritance: Quilting Across Prison Walls. Inheritance is a collaboration with a group of women in Cook County Jail. In class, they have been writing, drawing and telling stories about the idea of inheritance – what was passed down to them in their families and what they want to pass down to their children and grandchildren.
During this three hour quilting circle, we will gather together to sew and embroider their designs and writing, while discussing the impact of incarceration on millions of families across the country.
No experience necessary. Refreshments provided. Free and open to the public. Wheelchair accessible. For other accessibility needs contact Rachel at [email protected]
Inheritance Quilt is organized in collaboration with the Chicago Community Bond Fund and Love & Protect, and supported by funds from the Illinois Humanities Envisioning Justice program and the SAIC Nichols Tower Residency.
