“The Clothesline Project” is a day-long event that puts on display t-shirts made by participants seeking healing from acts of violence or offering support for victims of violence. That event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 19, between the cafeteria and Harned Hall.
Workshops for those wishing to create a t-shirt for the exhibition will be held Monday, Oct. 16, and Tuesday, Oct. 17 in the Woodward Library Media Center. Materials, including t shirts, will be provided.
“Take Back the Night” provides participants an opportunity to learn about the dynamics of violence as well as the resources available for its victims. It will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 19, in the tent between the cafeteria and the Memorial Health Building. The forum will include presentations by people who work in the field and a self-defense workshop by a martial arts instructor.
