Processions – Cardiff 10th June 2018

You are invited to play your part in PROCESSIONS – one of the largest participatory artworks ever created.

Produced by Artichoke and commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, PROCESSIONS will commemorate 100 years since the first women in the UK won the vote.
 

On Sunday 10th June 2018, thousands of women and girls, those who identify as women and non-binary individuals, will form four epic processions in the four political capitals of the UK – Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London. Given green, white or violet to wear, the colours of the suffrage movement whose initials stood for “Give Women Votes”, they will together create waves of colour as they celebrate the centenary of women’s suffrage.
 
In the months leading up to PROCESSIONS, artists, charities, networks, groups and individuals from across the UK are invited to come together to design and make banners, pennants and flags that express the lives, ideas and hopes of women in the 21st century – banners to carry with them on 10th June.

PROCESSIONS will be a living portrait of women and girls in the 21st century. Capturing the spirit of the moment, it will commemorate the past, celebrate the present and look to the future. 
As women continue to win more power and opportunity in contemporary society, we invite you to come and help us put women centre-stage in a joyful, inclusive celebration that will be remembered for years to come.
