Soulful Expression: Baltimore El Tendedero Clothesline exhibit

During our Baltimore Peace Challenge #HealinginCommUNITY event on Friday November 3rd, The Living Well will facilitate an interactive exhibit promoting the social issue of domestic and sexual violence and sex trafficking.  We will create a Baltimore El Tendedero Clothesline exhibit that provides attendees the opportunity to document their responses to questions regarding sexual assault.

This past September our Director of Innovation Maurissa Stone attended a Skill Sharing session at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C.  This session was hosted by the Woman, Arts and Social Change public program initiative. The skill sharing exchange was facilitated by Monica Mayer a Mexican artist who founded the El Tendedero Clothesline project to address issues of sexual violence in Mexico. This forum focused on the ways art can create awareness and inspire advocacy around the interconnected issues of sexual harassment, domestic violence, and trafficking. It was an insightful session with women from Baltimore and D.C. who are working for social justice regarding sexual violence.

The Living Well is honored to contribute to the installation that will be on view in the Long Gallery from November 10, 2017–January 5, 2018 at the Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. 
 
In conjunction with this exhibit, there is a corresponding Fresh Talk forum that will be held on November 12th.  Maurissa will be on the panel and will share our work, the images and video taken on Friday during our interactive exhibit entitled the  Baltimore El Tendedero Clothesline project.
 
The National Museum of Women in the Arts is an official sponsor of this segment of our event.
