The Pandemic Story Quilt Project

Thursday, 4/22/2021
9:00AM-9:00PM  
Exhibition Opening: All day

The Advocacy Project work with marginalized populations of the Global South to bring attention to the issues they face. One of the most successful of these projects has been Advocacy Quilts. The Project has sent Peace Fellows to many countries around the world to work with survivors of gender-based violence, families of the disappeared, war refugees, people living in poverty, victims of Agent Orange and others.

During the pandemic, the Advocacy Project supported some of our partners to tell the stories of how COVID has affected their lives. As a result, we are now constructing quilts from Nepal (families of the disappeared) and Zimbabwe (young girls resisting child marriage). Additionally, a group of high school girls from Arlington, Virginia became interested in supporting this work and created COVID blocks of their own which are also being put into a quilt. Women from the slums of Nairobi have also asked to make COVID blocks. The contrast among these works is striking as they offer different perspectives on how the COVID virus affect different populations.

This special exhibition displays the unique perspectives of our community and how we have been impacted by COVID this year. With color, fabrics, words, and images, our community comes together to process this collective experience – through art.
