The Clothesline Project

April 30 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until May 1, 2019

The Clothesline Project is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the SU Quad. The Clothesline Project is a national campaign started in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a visual display of art created on t-shirts by survivors of physical, sexual and emotional violence to express their feelings and stories of abuse and survival. The shirt is then hung on a clothesline to be viewed by the public as testimony to the problem of interpersonal violence and to let those who may suffer in silence know that they are not alone. The [Not Just] Women’s Center invites you to make a shirt for yourself or in honor of someone else. The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against women. T-shirts can be made Monday 4/29 from 10am-4pm in the Brandt Student Center. The finished t-shirts will be on display, in the quad, on Wednesday  5/1 from 9am-5pm. For more information, please contact Sarah Celec in the [Not Just] Women’s Center at thenjwc@su.edu.
