Current Project: Story Quilts with Unhoused Communities

In 2020 Feral Fabric started a new series of workshops collaborating with members of unhoused communities in the Bay Area to make story quilts.

For this project, people currently or recently experiencing homelessness make panels to self-represent, tell the story of their community, and process their experience. After the workshops we finish these panels and piece them into a free-form composition, which then becomes a quilt. This project will archive participants’ individual narratives and the stories of these temporary communities. The finished work will be displayed and deployed at many different types of venues to gain visibility and rights for people experiencing homelessness in the Bay Area.

Participating Organizations: Berkeley Women’s Daytime Drop-in Center, South County Homeless Center, Here/There Camp
