NMVW – Threads of Connection Drop-In Sessions – Public Library

In partnership with No More Violence Week April 10th-14th, 2023, Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art, Great Falls Public Library, Arden G Hill Memorial Library, and Cascade County Juvenile Detention Center are hosting Threads of Connection, a community quilt project. Participants are invited to create a quilt square to share their perspective on prevention of violence, with a variety of materials and locations to choose from. Squares made during the week will be on display at the community concert on 4/14.

This collaborative project began last year with over 140 squares completed by individuals from the community and will be continuing through April of this year! Many community groups are already committed to creating more squares in 2023. In honor of the 10th annual year of the event in 2024, the squares will be threaded together to display as a monumental community quilt.
