This Web site builds on the content that was posted for the Creativity and Crisis: Unfolding The AIDS Memorial Quilt Festival program, which included images and text written for the signs that were used to elaborate on Festival presentations. Additional Web pages draw on experiences and sentiments from Creativity and Crisis participants and staff that reflect the program as it “unfolded” during the two weeks of the Festival. Using participant quotes from discussion sessions, blogs about specific activities and presentations, video documentation and interviews, and photographs of the program, a more complete picture can be captured of the work and implications surrounding The AIDS Memorial Quilt.
