Throughout April and May 2018 we brought together a group of women to create Bedford’s centenary banner artwork for nationwide project PROCESSIONS. Working with Quilla Constance (aka artist Jennifer Allen), the banner has been designed and produced by this group over the course of eight workshops.
We worked with women* aged 16 or over on this once-in-a-lifetime experience to celebrate the centenary of the first women’s right to vote. The group then joined PROCESSIONS, a nationwide project marking an historic moment in a living, moving portrait of women in the 21st Century.
We joined the PROCESSIONS walk in London with our newly created banner on June 10 2018, as one of 100 organisations across the country selected to create a centenary banner artwork for large-scale artwork PROCESSIONS.
