Tell Your Heritage Story for #AmericanPatchworkProject

In anticipation of the performance by American Patchwork Quartet, the APQ and Centenary Stage Company are partnering together to collect heritage stories for the #AmericanPatchworkProject. There are no requirements as to what a heritage story is in order for it to be submitted. The story can be anything; an immigration story or that of parents / grandparents, a simple tracing of ancestral roots, a specific moment, experience, or story passed down or perhaps even a continued tradition that is part of an inherited sense of family identity. These stories will be collected now through January 21, 2022 and shared across Centenary Stage Company’s social media platforms as part of the #AmericanPatchworkProject. This project culminates with A Conversation with American Patchwork Quartet on January 22 at 3pm where American Patchwork Quartet will share about their own heritage, their music, and their mission, and then perform in concert at 8pm. Learn more about the project.
