About the Event
Laundry Day Tip #1: Correct the voice in your head that says that your story is not important to share.
Laundry Days are a call for women* to gather, to listen and be heard, and an opportunity to create pieces of visual storytelling that share and reveal stories and experiences of strength, hope, unity, and resistance of oppression, injustice, and exclusion.
*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, gender identity and gender expression.
The possibilities are literally endless in terms of how you choose to participate. Some women have found that they would prefer to create their piece individually and from home, while others have really enjoyed the experience of connecting with others at a Laundry Day Workshop, either virtually or in-person.
I am happy to speak with you individually about which might work best for you and/or your group and I am here to support you in whatever path feels right.
If you are intersted in hosting your own Laundry Day, please contact me so that I can be supportive to you on my end by providing you with some tips and ideas for creating and holding this space with your group.
We all have a story to tell. Be a part of the narrative.
