Virtual Laundry Day Workshop with Andrea Downs
The Arts Council of York County invites individuals, groups and communities to engage in Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry project, with Laundry Day Workshops, a call for women to gather together, opportunity to listen and to be heard, and to foster the love and understanding that resists hate and injustice. Laundry Day Workshops provide basic art making materials and brave, supportive, and safe spaces for women to create pieces of visual storytelling. Women’s signed or anonymous stories are collected and then joined together on laundry clotheslines in ongoing installations. Each story has a top layer that flows freely and is meant to be lifted as an invitation to the viewer to engage in and reveal the story underneath. A Laundry Day Workshop will be held September 19th from 11 a.m. to noon, presented virtually and led by Andrea Downs. The class is free, but registration is required, by September 18th.
