The Clothesline Project is a participatory exhibit and a visual display designed to break the silence surrounding violence against women and to illustrate the impact of violence.

The exhibit is comprised of t-shirts designed by survivors of violence and by their families and friends who have been impacted by the violence perpetrated against their loved ones. Participants walk through the rows of T-shirts on clotheslines to bear witness to these tragedies. The project focuses on providing healing for survivors of violence, educating the public about violence, and preventing violence.

Statistics become individuals. Abstract ideas become real.
