UA-PTC hosts Clothesline Project to raise awareness of domestic violence
The Clothesline Project and the Silent Witness Project return to campus beginning Monday, October 3 and will be on display at the Main Campus on the first floor of the Campus Center until Friday, October 7 to raise awareness of the impact of intimate partner violence during the Domestic Violence Awareness Month of October.
The Clothesline Project, is a program of the Arkansas Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Its purpose is to bear witness to the survivors and victims of domestic violence, to help with the healing process, to educate and raise awareness of domestic violence, and to provide a network or support and information. Hand-decorated shirts, including many created by students, faculty and staff over the years, will be hung in the Campus Center stairwell and lobby at the Main Campus to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of domestic violence.
Information about domestic violence and the opportunity to make your own T-shirt will be available Monday - Thursday from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. The campus community is invited to make t-shirts in honor of someone that they know that has been affected by domestic violence. Shirts and supplies will be provided at no cost.
Also on display will be the Silent Witness Project, which includes life-sized, silhouettes representing the Arkansas women, men and children who were murdered as a result of domestic violence. All witnesses carry the name and the story of each victim. Because these individuals no longer have a voice, the silhouettes are called Silent Witnesses. The figures will be displayed in the Campus Center as an effort to raise awareness about the devastating impact of abuse.
