21st May 2018 – In 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the British women the right to vote and stand for public office for the first time. On Sunday 10th June, women and girls from across the UK will come together to create a huge, participatory artwork to celebrate one hundred years of votes for women.
One hundred women artists are being commissioned to work with communities across the UK to create 100 centenary banners. Wearing either, green, white or violet, the colours of the suffragette movement, the PROCESSIONS will appear as a flowing river of colour through the city streets.
‘Processions’ has been conceived by Artichoke – a leading arts charity that works with artists to invade public spaces and put on extraordinary and memorable events. There’s still time to to sign up to become part of this exciting event! If you are interested, you can learn more about it here: https://www.artichoke.uk.com/project/processions/
