3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Join the UIC Disability Cultural Center and Campus Advocacy Network for an afternoon of crafting as we hold space for disabled survivors of ableist and gender-based violence. Uplift stories of healing and resistance with craftivism!
We will share some framing thoughts and then participants will be invited to make art on articles of clothing for a public art installation — sharing their stories, bearing witness, and/or expressing solidarity. All are welcome.
All craft materials will be provided, as well as confidential support, resources for survivors and snacks.
This event is in-person and on Zoom!
Zoom details and directions to the DCC will come in your confirmation email.
About the Clothesline Project:
The Clothesline Project is an interactive exhibit of messages of resilience, healing and hope for individuals and communities impacted by interpersonal violence and abuse. The initiative began in 1990 with a group of Massachusetts women who wanted to give survivors an opportunity to speak out about their experiences. Since then, college campuses, crisis centers, and community organizations throughout the U.S. and around the world have hosted Clothesline Project events to bear witness to gender-based violence.
COVID-19 Safety: Masking is no longer required on UIC’s campus except in clinical settings. However, we ask that you wear a mask in the DCC space to keep our communities safe and show solidarity with immunocompromised and disabled people. We have some extras available!
