Individuals, groups and communities of people are invited to engage in Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry project. Laundry Day Workshops are a call for women to gather together, opportunity to listen and to be heard, and to foster the love and understanding that resists hate and injustice. Laundry Day Workshops provide basic artmaking materials and brave, supportive, and safe spaces for women to create pieces of visual storytelling. Women’s signed or anonymous stories are collected and then joined together on laundry clotheslines in ongoing installations. Each story has a top layer that flows freely and is meant to be lifted as an invitation to the viewer to engage in and reveal the story underneath.
