Jeanne Hewell-Chambers “The 70273 Project: A Backstage Pass”

September 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Jeanne Hewell-Chambers “The 70273 Project: A Backstage Pass”

Jeanne gives you a backstage pass to The 70273 Project (a worldwide collaboration through which she gathers 70,273 quilt blocks to commemorate every one of the 70,273 people with disabilities Nazi physicians had murdered between January 1940 and August 1941). She’ll weave together tales of the genesis, history, and evolution of the project with stories about Aktion T4 (the top secret organization responsible for the murders). She’ll take you around the world, showing specific blocks and quilts (via slides or display or both), telling you about the people who made them, the fabrics they used, and why this project resonates so deeply with them. Her tales of The 70273 Project Tribe will restore your faith in humanity. In her own unique way of telling stories that are sometimes difficult (and yet necessary) to hear, Jeanne takes you on a safari of joy and sadness, lightheartedness and reflection, creativity, kindness, and compassion.

Complimentary reservations are available by calling 913-327-8196 or emailing rsvp@mchekc.org.
