About the event
We all have a story to tell.
Be a part of the narrative, make your story visible, and connect with people who will appreciate you.
Virtual Laundry Day opportunities will be held indefinitely and on the first Sunday of each month. These virtual spaces have become a beautiful way for women to listen, feel heard, and connect from locations all over the globe.
Please RSVP here to receive the email that includes the Zoom link for the event. The Zoom link is not shared publicly in order to create a safe, brave online environment for all participants.
Airing Out the "Dirty" Laundry is an ongoing community art movement that responds to the silencing of women*, creating Laundry Day opportunities for all women to share experiences through visual storytelling.
You don’t need any artistic skill to participate, just a desire to share your story.
There is never pressure to share your story verbally. Some women find that holding space with other women allows them to process a story. Along these lines, please connect to the meeting in a space that feels most comfortable and safe to you.
These hour-long Virtual Laundry Day opportunities hold space for you to hear more about the purpose behind Airing Out the "Dirty" Laundry, see a variety of examples of pieces that women have already created, and time to begin considering the story that you would like to share.
If possible, identify and have available articles of clothing or other textiles or pieces of fabric, photos or even things that you have written that could serve as the base layer for your piece.
Your signed or anonymous piece can be created and completed at home and then mailed to me at 613 Neill Ridge Road, Matthews, NC 28105 and will become a part of the ever growing collection of women’s stories and joined together on laundry clotheslines in ongoing installations of Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry.
*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.
