Raising Awareness for Survivors: A Clothesline Project Exhibit, October 1-31

Throughout October, take a moment when you walk through the library doors and admire the courage on display honoring Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In this public exhibit, a clothesline will be hung in the 1st Floor Main Lobby with shirts designed by survivors to represent their stories, their emotions, and their experience. Each shirt on display is made by someone in Massachusetts.

The Clothesline Project was started on Cape Cod, MA in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. This exhibit is part of the Reclaiming Your Story grant, graciously funded by the Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) Direct Grant Program, and is in partnership with RESPOND, Inc, New England’s first domestic violence prevention agency.
