Seawolf Living Event: Clothesline Project
This three day event in Salazar Plaza starts Tuesday, April 4th starting at 10:00am till 2:00pm with the same time frame for April 5th and April 6th.
The following passage was taken from the Seawolf Living website. Please follow the link below for more information.
“The Clothesline Project was created to bring awareness to the issue of violence against women. For women who have been affected by violence, it is a means of expressing their emotions by decorating a t-shirt. After the shirts have been decorated, they are hung on a clothesline display. The intention of the display is to honor survivors and act as a memorial for victims. It is also intended to aid in the healing process for those who were directly affected and those who have lost someone special to violence. Lastly, the clothesline display is to educate society and promote awareness, as well as to document violent crimes against women.”
Seawolf Living Event: ASP Free Tie Dye Bowling
