Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry is a catalyst for women’s* voices, a call to gather, opportunity to listen and be heard, and to foster the love and understanding that resists hate and injustice. (*cis women, trans women, and women identified folks)
Laundry Days are spaces and opportunities for women to gather together to create pieces of visual storytelling. The top layer sewn over each piece of “dirty” laundry flows freely and is meant to be lifted as an invitation to a continuous dialogue about our experiences and hopes. This layer is not hiding stories, rather it is meant to invite curiosity and engagement with the viewer.
While materials are provided, folks are encouraged to bring articles of clothing, fabric, and other personal items that can become a part of the piece. It’s helpful when these items connect with the meaning behind the story that is being revealed.
Laundry Days are spaces and opportunities for women to gather together to create pieces of visual storytelling–all of the anonymous or signed pieces are joined with the others on clotheslines and in upcoming installations of Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry.
