School of Social Transformation's Clothesline Project

Home / Clothesline Project at ASU

The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts with graphic messages and illustrations that have been designed by survivors of and individuals impacted by domestic violence. The purpose of the project is to increase awareness, destabilize stereotypes about “victims”, celebrate a person’s strength to survive, and to provide another avenue to courageously break the silence that often surrounds these experiences.

Make a Shirt
We want to hear your story! Whether it reflects your own thoughts and experiences with gender-based violence or is a message of support to survivors, all shirts all welcome. You can bring your completed shirts to Wilson 125 prior to the event or host a shirt making party! For more information, contact Alesha Durfee at

All donations of supplies are welcome! Supplies such as shirts, fabric paints, brushes, cups, fabric markers, permanent markers, and clothespins are all needed. Supply donations can be left at the Wilson Hall front office.

If you would like to dedicate your time to this event, we will need people to help hang and take down the shirts on the dates of the event. All organizations and individuals are invited to take part, so spread the word!
