Community Display Program

Host a Quilt Display in Your Community Today

Share in the Quilt’s powerful stories of activism, love, healing, hope and remembrance and connect the story of HIV/AIDS to the important issues impacting our nation today.

Each year, the National AIDS Memorial partners with community-based organizations across the country to display sections of the Quilt to raise greater awareness about HIV/AIDS impacting people today. Help remember those we’ve lost and raise awareness about the disproportionate impact the epidemic continues to have in communities of color and among marginalized populations. Together, we can end HIV.

Community Display Program

As the largest community arts project in the world, the AIDS Memorial Quilt is a teaching tool to help educate people about HIV/AIDS, its continued impact today, and to remember the 700,000 U.S. lives lost in the four decades since the first cases were reported. Quilt displays help support local HIV/AIDS service organizations, LGBTQ+ centers, and raise awareness about the issues of health and social justice.

Now is the time to plan your community display. Costs to host a section of the Quilt in your community begins at $600 and up depending on the number of blocks being displayed, plus shipping and handling fees. The fee structure is detailed in the registration.

Today, Community Displays are More Important than Ever.

Four decades into the epidemic, HIV continues to have a disproportionate impact on communities of color and marginalized populations, particularly in the Southern United States.  We hope you will partner with the National AIDS Memorial to bring the Quilt to your community.
