Laundry Day Workshop – Saturday, February 1, 2-4 PM – Levine Museum of the New South
As women*, our voices are often silenced.
Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry is an ongoing community art movement that responds to this silencing by creating opportunities for women (cis women, trans women, women identifying, and non-binary people) to share experiences of strength, unity, and resistance of oppression, injustice, and exclusion through visual storytelling.
On Saturday February 1st, 2020 from 2-4pm local artist, Andrea Downs and the Charlotte Women’s Movement will be working in partnership to invite ALL WOMEN to be a part of this initiative at the Levine Museum of the New South.
The Laundry Day workshop will provide an opportunity for you to share your voice through the creation of a piece of visual storytelling that will be displayed with others on the Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry clotheslines at locations throughout Charlotte and across the country AND at The Mint Museum Uptown in summer 2020.
You don’t need any artistic skill to participate, just a desire to tell your story.
Basic workshop materials will be provided. If possible, however, please bring articles of clothing or other textiles or pieces of fabric that can serve as the base layer for your piece. You may also want to bring photographs, letters, and other items that are personally significant or provide a meaningful connection to the story you want to share.
Please connect with women’s stories and the movement by visiting www.airingoutthedirtylaundry.com, Instagram @womenslaundry, and FB @WeBelieveInEquality
