The Clothesline Project on Saturday, May 25th From 10am-2pm

The Clothesline Project began in October 1990 in Hyannis, Massachusetts, and has since spread globally as a powerful symbol in the fight against gender-based violence. This initiative allows survivors of sexual violence to express their emotions, healing process, and courageous words for others to see.

By decorating T-shirts, we honour both survivors of violence and those who have tragically lost their lives. These shirts are hung on a clothesline, creating a powerful visual testimony about the pervasiveness and severity of gender-based violence right here in Ottawa.

This year, our event is about more than raising awareness—it’s about celebrating the resilience of survivors and, most importantly, calling for the liberation every person is worthy of. We invite you to be part of this empowering movement.

Join us on Saturday, May 25, from 10 am—2 pm at Minto Park (102 Lewis Street), filled with yoga, painting, music, bubbles, and more. We will use artmaking as a tool to amplify our calls to end violence.

How will you contribute to ending gender-based violence? Come and be part of the change!
