Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry is an ongoing community art movement that responds to the silencing of women*,

creating opportunities for all women to share experiences through visual storytelling.

*Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry holds space for all women across the intersections of race, age, color, disability, faith, religion, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, social class, economic class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.

ABOUT

Be a part of the narrative.

Individuals, groups and communities of people are invited to engage in Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry in multiple ways. 
 
Virtual and in-person Laundry Days are a call for women* to gather together, opportunity to listen and to be heard, and to foster the love and understanding that resists hate and injustice. Laundry Day Workshops provide basic art making materials and brave, supportive, and safe spaces for all to create pieces of visual storytelling. 
 
Women’s signed or anonymous stories are collected and then joined together on laundry clotheslines in ongoing installations. Each story has a top layer that flows freely and is meant to be lifted as an invitation to the viewer to engage in and reveal the story underneath.
 
Individuals are also invited to participate virtually in MESSAGE RECEIVED and by creating a visual or audio storytelling piece from home. 
 
All of the stories and experiences that are shared become a part of the ongoing collection.
 
*All women, femmes, and non binary people who are comfortable in a space that centers the experiences of women are invited to participate.
 

“Because Laundry Day is specifically about women, it felt like it was finally the right time to explore something I've been wrestling with, but can't say aloud.”
