The Clothesline Project

Since 1998, the WCA has organized a local display of the Clothesline Project (CLP) for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. After needing to do a virtual clothesline last year due to COVID (view the video here), we are excited to offer the community a chance to participate once again. The Clothesline Project began in Hyannis, Massachusetts, to give voice to victims and survivors of domestic violence and create a powerful public display of what is too often considered a private matter. Since 1990, it has grown dramatically, promoting awareness of the realities of domestic and sexual violence in communities and universities throughout the country.

Each year, we invite participants in our support groups for survivors of domestic abuse/sexual assault and their children to paint t-shirts portraying their experiences with violence, victimization, and healing as an exercise in art therapy. With the painters’ permission, the WCA delivers clotheslines of these shirts to hang in businesses and organizations around Boise to raise awareness of the lasting impacts of domestic abuse in our community.

Please consider hosting a Clothesline Project display during the month of October to raise awareness about domestic abuse and sexual assault in our community. Fill out our online form to order your CLP supplies for pick-up. Alternatively, email the Outreach Coordinator at edehmer@wcaboise.org for more information.
