PROCESSIONS by 14-18 NOW and Artichoke - On 6 February 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the first British women the right to vote. Artichoke, the UK’s largest producer of art in the public realm, invited women and girls to mark this moment by taking part in a major mass-participation artwork. They walk together in public processions, forming a living portrait of women in the 21st century and a visual expression of equality. celebrating the fight for suffrage. Text and textiles are at the heart of the project - the public took part in a creative programme of banner-making and 100 artists worked with community groups across the country to deliver expressive banners and iconic artworks.
