What is the Clothesline Project?
What: The Clothesline Project is a collective public exhibit of t-shirts created by survivors of violence and those who have lost a loved one to violence. In the public display, each shirt is hung so that viewers can witness the impact of domestic violence in our community. Join us in this empowering event designed to bring healing to survivors of violence, education about violence, and violence prevention.
Who: Write your story as a survivor, or tell the story of the one you are there to remember. Anyone who has experienced domestic violence, at any time in their life, is encouraged to come forward and design a shirt to represent their story. Victim's families and friends are encouraged to participate.
Where: You can create your shirt at home, or at the event. If you want to create your shirt that night, bring a white or light colored t-shirt you can write on. We will have some extra shirts and sharpies available; if you have an extra t-shirt, bring it along for someone else to use. To order a (free!) shirt fill out this google form. In your design, please do not include your name or any other identifying information in your design.
