AIDS Memorial Quilt

  Observed annually on World AIDS Day, always the first of December, DAY WITH(OUT) ART has evolved since its inception in 1989 by members of the art activist collective VISUAL AIDS to become a day with art, a collaborative project by over 6,000 arts communities around the world which demonstrates the power of art to raise awareness of the ongoing AIDS pandemic.

  In a war against a disease that has no cure, The AIDS Memorial Quilt has evolved as our most potent tool in the effort to educate against the lethal threat of AIDS. By revealing the humanity behind the statistics, The AIDS Memorial Quilt helps teach compassion, triumphs over taboo, stigma and phobia; and inspires individuals to take direct responsibility for their own well- being and that of their family, friends and community. 

Stop by The Stream today and see these magnificent quilts!
