Wagga’s ‘craftivists’ want the city to know domestic violence is more than two adults fighting. 

Andreia Schineanu is part of a team using craft for social activism to show that domestic violence is about power and control.

Wagga’s Dirty Laundry is comprised of shirts embroidered with quotes from Wagga children about their own experiences with domestic violence.

“If it disturbs people, that’s good,” Doctor Schineanu said.

“I want to get people upset enough that they need to do something about it.”

Quotes include “I never let any of my friends come over in case they saw how we lived” and “I worry all day at school about what is happening at home to mum.”

The exhibition opens at council on Monday and moves to the university on Thursday.
