PROCESSIONS WALK

10/06/2018

Event Description

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.

On Sunday 10 June 2018, women and girls in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London will walk together as part of this celebratory mass participation artwork. Wearing either green, white or violet, the colours of the suffragette movement, the PROCESSIONS will appear as a flowing river of colour through the city streets.

It will be a visual expression of equality, strength and cultural representation, inviting all women to unite and celebrate the early fight for the right to vote and express what it means to be a woman today.

Join our PROCESSIONS workshops to make Bedford’s centenary banner and walk with us on 10 June 2018. Alternatively, make your own banner to join in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

PROCESSIONS is commissioned by 14-18 NOW and produced by Artichoke. With support from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, and from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. PROCESSIONS Cardiff is produced by Artichoke in partnership with Festival of Voice and Wales Millennium Centre.

Artists

Artist

Jennifer Allen AKA Quilla Constance QC

Quilla Constance ‘QC’ is an exoticized militant punk persona and the creation of artist Jennifer Allen. The artist’s work is concerned with exploring perceptions of race, identity and gender, particularly within pop and contemporary culture. As Quilla Constance she inserts her artistic practice into pop culture to interrupt the status quo. ‘QC’ can be found forging protests in public space, traversing music venues, entering art galleries and staging interventions using a wide range of interdisciplinary media, including live performance, large scale paintings, costumes, music videos, photographs and lectures. Her work embodies a vibrant and dynamic punk aesthetic. She employs languages of irony and hyperbole to make her costumes using exoticized materials and DIY techniques to create a powerful visual impact. The artist lives in Bedford.
