Hand-made banners marking the achievements of the women’s sufferage movement
June 10th 2018 saw the culmination of Artichoke’s wonderful mass participation artwork Processions, which celebrated one hundred years of votes for women. Thousands of women took to the streets of London, Cardiff, Belfast and Edinburgh with hand-made banners to mark the achievements of the women’s sufferage movement. This display of banners made in the West Midlands includes Imagineer’s banner, made through its newly established Art Café programme in Moathouse and Hagard Community Centres, with communities who worked alongside textile artists Julia O’Connell and Julie Joannides.
