The Clothesline Project – Create Your Own T-shirt
The Clothesline Project is a visual display of art created on colored t-shirts by survivors of physical, sexual, and/or 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.
Create your t-shirt at home and post a picture. You can post up to 10 photos.
You have all day to post on SALO’s Facebook, Instagram, or Canvas.
A random student will be selected to win a $25 gift card. *See rules below.
