The Clothesline Project is a worldwide project that involves people drawing images or writing messages on t-shirts about respectful relationships, gender equity and family violence. The T-shirts are then displayed in public places to raise awareness.
At the hugely successful Family Fun Day at Batesford Reserve on 17 November, the community enthusiastically and wholeheartedly participated in the Clothesline Project. More than 100 t-shirts displaying messages and imagery of love, respect and equality were designed and then hung up on display.
This Project was coordinated by the Ashwood and Chadstone Family Violence Group whose membership is comprised of representatives from Council, Power Neighbourhood House, Ashburton, Ashwood and Chadstone Public Tenants Group, Victoria Police and Link Health and Community.
The t-shirts will be displayed in the Glen Waverley Library forecourt, Civic Centre, Monash Libraries and Power Neighbourhood House as part of Council’s 16 days of Activism campaign.
