IUSB's Clothesline Project: Shirt-Making Session
Creating a shirt
- Bring your own t-shirt.

- Markers will be provided, but please feel free to bring additional items that you would like to use on your t-shirt design.
What is the Clothesline?
The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against women. During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts. Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular woman’s experience, by the survivor herself or by someone who cares about her.
The purpose of the project is four-fold.
1. To bear witness to the survivors as well as the war against women.
2. To help with the healing process for people who have lost a love one or are survivors of this violence.
3. To educate, document, and raise society’s awareness of the extent of the problem of violence against women.
4. To provide a nationwide network of support, encouragement and information for other communities starting their own Clothesline Project.
