The Clothesline Project: Prevention of Violence Against Women Week

The Clothesline Project is a public display bearing witness to the serious problem of gender-based violence. Each shirt hanging on the Clothesline is decorated with words or images to represent a participant’s personal beliefs, understanding or experiences of gender-based violence.

Visit the library during the week of April 15 to 19, 2024, to engage with this interactive art installation. If you stop by on April 16, 17, and 18 between 1 and 4 p.m., PearlSpace will be set up in our lobby, where you can decorate your own shirt to be added to the installation – all supplies provided.

Although this week shines a light on violence against women, PearlSpace is working to increase awareness and support those who identify as a marginalized gender, as we know that non-binary, trans, and Two-Spirit people all experience gender-based violence at a greater rate. This week is an important part of our work to end gender-based violence against all people. Prevention starts with acknowledging that a problem exists.

The event is finished.
