Hang out Washing Line!
You can also celebrate the new marriage legislation by hanging a washing line. Washing Line – a Friendly Gesture is a community art project by Ilar Gunilla Persson and Heidi Lunabba where everyone who want to show their support for equal value are invited to hang out washing in the colors of the rainbow, photograph it and share images using the tag #tvattlina.
Pick out clothes or other textiles representing the colors of the rainbow. The fabrics do not need to be one color, it is sufficient that the dominant color is the color that should be represented in your rainbow. The washing line can be in your courtyard, balcony, summerhouse, car, bike or anywhere visible. If you are a business owner, you can hang the washing line in your storefront.
We ask you to photograph your washing line and other rainbow washing lines and share the pictures using the tag #tvattlina on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, if you do not use social media or you have a closed account please send the images to rainbowtvattlina(a)gmail.com.
