StitchCast Studio

StitchCast Studio is a podcast produced by Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective in Saint Louis, Missouri. It’s a show about the streets, gun violence, and finding solutions to issues that are coming at our youth hard. The voices of youth of color are important to hear at this critical time. StitchCast Studio creates a series of leveled conversations about issues that concern youth related to health, safety and violence. This is the place to come to hear real conversations about what’s on the minds of 16-24 year old St. Louis youth and catch some powerful new ideas for solutions. Programs include original spoken word and music produced by Saint Louis Story Stitchers. In 2021/22, Saint Louis Story Stitchers is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. On the web at arts dot gov. Additional support for StitchCast Studio Season III and Story Stitchers youth programs was provided by the Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund, The Lewis Prize for Music Accelerator Award, City of St. Louis Youth at Risk Crime Prevention grant of 2021, and March For Our Lives Aid & Alliance.
