PROCESSIONS is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in a mass participation artwork to celebrate one hundred years of votes for women.

In 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the first British women the right to vote and stand for public office. One hundred years on, women* and girls across the UK will mark this historic moment as part of a living portrait of women in the 21st century. On Sunday 10th of June, women and girls in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London will walk together as part of this celebratory mass participation artwork.

Find out more about the project details here.

We are particularly interested in hearing from women with some previous sewing experience. Participants will work with professional embroiderer Laura Lees, who will assist with the making element of the banner and support the participants in gaining new and improved skills in this area – therefore experience of embroidery is not a prerequisite.

If you would like to get involved in the project or would like any further information please contact Rosie Hermon, Nine Elms Arts and Events Manager – rosie@nineelmsonthesouthbank.com / 07920 214428
