A multi-sensory and autism-friendly art installation by Mahlia Amatina


'Around the World in 80 Washing Lines' is an art project that celebrates human diversity by using a universal domestic chore to highlight what connects us in an increasingly divided world. Photographs and stories from across the globe are displayed as garments hung out to dry, inviting visitors to explore the stories through touch, smell and sound.

Diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in late 2015, neurodiversity is an integral aspect of Mahlia Amatina's artistic practice. She has created a social art project accessible to a wide and diverse audience, with theĀ support of the National Autistic Society and Arts Council England.

The London exhibition concludes the current series of exhibitions across galleries and launderettes in the South East. Following highly acclaimed workshops with social enterprises from Reading to Slough, primary schools and charities are particularly welcome to visit this autism-friendly multi-sensory art installation.
