HIV Sisters: Living Quilt is an interactive, web-based, public arts project for all women & girls to share their personal story of being infected, impacted, & at risk for HIV/AIDS. Women and girls are encouraged to use video, images, audio, and text to create their personal stories and share them with their social networks. In 2008, ten African American and Latina women initially launched this online living AIDS quilt with their auto-biographical and biographical vignettes that reflect the feminized impact of this virus.
