I Grow Chicago’s Women’s Group will be utilizing quilting as an art intervention with a group of African American women who are working through complex trauma. Each square tells a story; it can be dark or hopeful or abstract feeling. Speaking about your piece is an essential part of the process. Working together builds sisterhood, and this is a project that is infinitely expandable. The quilting and telling of stories will allow the participants to help each other heal and grow.
