Story Tapestries

Story Tapestries Empower. Educate. Engage. Story Tapestries combines the arts, language and STEM with social-emotional development to support individuals and whole communities.
At the heart of Story Tapestries’ programs is the desire to empower people to identify and access their personal strengths and boost their areas of weakness. Twenty percent of our offerings are one-time “spark” programs and performances that serve to inspire and motivate audiences to engage in the arts and to attend other performances or workshops. Eighty percent of our programs are “intensive” in-depth arts experiences that enable collaboration with others and result in participants’ increased confidence in speaking in front of others and presenting their ideas via performance or display. Story Tapestries seeks to: - Strengthen communities by helping partners build self-sufficient, sustainable arts-based programs - Increase access to arts integration programs to high-need communities - Become a resource for arts integration in education and community development online and in person

Mission: Story Tapestries is dedicated to building a framework for success. We will empower, educate, and encourage children and adults to develop a comprehensive approach that combines the arts, literacy strategies, and technology with social development. The results of these custom designed programs are a multi-literate society and an increase in successful community members. Vision: Story Tapestries will create a world-class network of artists, educators, business and community members. They will be committed to utilizing a combination of the arts, educational strategies and social development to build a multi-literate society.

Mission: Story Tapestries, a 501c3, is a leading education organization that supports youth and community development utilizing: arts literacy strategies STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) social development Collaborative programs use innovative methods to prepare tomorrow’s workforce and develop sustainable community support systems.
