Clothesline Project to Make ATU Debut in March

Clothesline Project Flyer

The Arkansas Tech University Office of Title IX and the ATU Department of Campus Life are hosting the institution’s first Clothesline Project display in conjunction with ATU’s 2023 Women’s Week observance.

“The Clothesline Project, founded in Cape Cod in 1990, began as a visual display of violence perpetrated against women,” said Stacy Galbo, assistant dean for student conduct and deputy Title IX coordinator/investigator at ATU. “Participants designed and displayed shirts that conveyed either their personal experience with interpersonal violence or the experience of a friend or family member who was unable to share their story. Over the decades, the project has evolved to include all forms of interpersonal violence, and at ATU, we welcome students, faculty and staff of all gender identities to participate.”

Members of the ATU community are invited to submit shirts for inclusion in the project through 5 p.m. Friday, March 3. Shirts may be dropped off in Doc Bryan Student Services Center suites 119 or 233 weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Examples of Clothlesline Project shirts are available at

A station where ATU faculty, staff and students can create shirts will be open from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, in Doc Bryan Student Services Center room 242. Free blank shirts, art supplies and confidential support staff and advocates will be available.

Additional blank shirts will be available in Doc Bryan Student Services Center suite 233 while supplies last.

The display of submitted shirts will take place from 2-4 p.m. Monday, March 6, at Hindsman Tower. After the March 6 event, the shirts will be moved to the Hull Building Student Union for display throughout the remainder of Women’s Week.
