Processions

On 10 June 2018, women and girls in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London walked together as part of this celebratory mass participation artwork. Wearing either green, white or violet, the colours of the suffragette movement, the PROCESSIONS appeared as a flowing river of colour through the city streets. I am so thrilled to have been one of the 100 women artists commissioned to work with organisations and communities across the UK to create one hundred centenary banners for PROCESSIONS as part of an extensive public programme of creative workshops. Great also to meet local Green MP Caroline Lucas who joined us at Brighton station! - here is her tweeted message

My heartfelt thanks to the wonderful women who came together with me, and worked so hard for two months on the banner, to represent Brighton for this magical, and very important event. And of course my warmest thanks to Artichoke, who commissioned the work, and made such an incredible, historical moment possible. See a one minute film of us creating the banner in Brighton-based workshops.
