Kirksville Community Quilt
Each quilt made across time and culture tells a different story. The Kirksville Community Quilt tells the story of Kirksville through its history and people.
This project was conceptualized in light of the current political climate in order to bring people together under a shared interest of quilting, knitting, and crocheting. The quilt, which symbolically represents the all the diverse sub communities that make Kirksville, Missouri, will be displayed at Take Root Café once it is finished. Meetings currently take place every Tuesday from 4:15-6:15 at Take Root Café plus monthly skills share workshops. Please check the Take Root Café calendar for quilting skill share dates.
The creation of the project depends on community participation! If you are interested in creating a 12x12 inch square for the quilt please use the contact form on this website to contact the artist.

The Green Thumb Project
The installation of art in the Community Learning Garden is an ongoing process that is expected to conclude in the Spring of 2018. This process includes research on original habitants and settlers of the Northeast Missouri area, a community design charette, and community collaboration. The design of the pavilion columns was inspired by the probable original inhabitants the Missouria, the current location or the garden behind Ray Miller Elementary School, and the colors of the fence around the main garden area.
All of the art installed in the Learning garden area is done so with structured and unstructured public use of the space in mind.
If you are interested in volunteering your time to the installation of art in the Learning Garden space please use the contact form on this website to contact the artist.
Park River Toolkit
The body of Nomad9/C1 functions as a collective of rivers, a Confluence. We each bring our own diverse experiences with water to this toolkit. Much like our veins feed our systems within, we bridge them through abundantly sharing resources. Our stories multiply and flow, carrying us.
We are committed to experiential understanding and knowledge building. Creating and distributing knowledge through exchanges based on listening, reciprocity, creative response, and our bodies become a source of knowledge. These actions function outside of our individual bodies, and on a collaborative, multigenerational scale.
Visit and contribute to the toolkit.
