Richmond Art Center presents 'The Remembrance Project' as part of their winter exhibition schedule
A collection of banners from The Remembrance Project are displayed at Richmond Art Center in remembrance of our community members who have been lost to violence.

RICHMOND, CALIF.- The Remembrance Project will open January 18th at the Richmond Art Center as part of their winter exhibitions project, which will include an opening reception on Saturday, January 21st from 2pm-4pm, as well as a project workstop and book talk.

Social Justice Sewing Academy presents The Remembrance Project, a cloth memorial of activist art banners commemorating the many people who have lost their lives to systems of inequity and racist structures. These banners have been created collectively by volunteers across the country to help educate and inform communities about the human impact of systemic violence.

The Remembrance Project banners are displayed by local and national organizations to express solidarity in the fight for social justice and remembrance of those lost to violence. The project remembers those lost to: authority violence (officer-involved shooting, police brutality, etc.), community violence (victims of gang violence, neighborhood or family, drive-by shooting, etc.), racial violence (hate crimes, racially motivated, etc.), and sexual and gender-based violence (violence against LGBTQ+, domestic violence, “missing, murdered Indigenous women,” etc.).

The Remembrance Project Workshop will be on Saturday, January 28, 2pm-4pm. Join Social Justice Sewing Academy in an interactive hands-on workshop that merges craft, art and activism to create textile art pieces that are displayed nationally in museums and other shows. This workshop allows participants to discuss topics pertaining to social justice issues in a brave and safe space. During the two hour workshop you will participate in critical discussion and create a piece of textile art that you are passionate about. This workshop is free, open to all and no rsvp is necessary.

Stitching Stolen Lives: Book Talk With Author and Founder of SJSA, Sara Trail will take place Saturday, March 4, 1pm-2:30pm. Join us for a talk and book signing with Sara Trail, founder of Social Justice Sewing Academy and co-author of Stitching Stolen Lives, a book that chronicles the work of SJSA and the Remembrance Project. With forewords by Hillary Rodham Clinton and Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr, the book includes personal stories of individuals and their families whose lives have been cut short due to social injustices. This event is free, open to all and no rsvp is necessary.
