“Weaving Unity Into Community” was a public and community-based collaborative art project that included youth and residents of Parkway Place, a public housing community in Louisville’s Parkhill neighborhood. This project was part of the PAINT (Producing Art In Neighborhoods Together) program, which is run and operated by Louisville-based 501(c)3 “Center For Neighborhoods”. The artist partner on this project was fiber artist and art therapist Pat Sturtzel.

This project was made possible thanks to collaborative institutional and organizational partnerships involving: Center For Neighborhoods (project organizer, facilitator, staffing), Louisville Metro Housing Authority (organizer, facilitator, staffing, space), and the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft (facilitation and staff), and Jefferson County Public Schools (allowed use of their fence). Funding for this program was provided through grants from the Kentucky Arts Council’s “Arts Build Communities” program and the Cralle Foundation. Additional support was provided by The Green Building, Kertis Creative, Sud-Chemie, and Metro United Way.

This project would not have been possible without the support for numerous dedicated community volunteers. Thank you!
