Capitalising on the everyday… Laundry

In the context of deprived Cheetham Hill, one of the inner city areas of Manchester, which follows sexist planning, the project challenges the ideal of men providing for the households and women taking care of them. Through this, doing the laundry is displaced from the private to the public realm, giving time for personal development to those who usually carry such everyday tasks out, and opening a new job market for the unemployed.
