The Clothesline Project

T-shirts from Family Resource Centre’s “Clothesline Project” are currently on display in the National Gallery’s Education Centre in support of the “16 days of activism to end violence against women & girls” campaign.

These t-shirts were decorated by members of the community who have been affected by violence.

 The shirts are displayed in hopes that this will encourage others to break the silence of domestic violence within the Cayman Islands, show that everyone does have a voice, and show survivors that they are supported by their community. The Clothesline Project will be on view at NGCI until Monday, 10December.
