Active collecting at Processions 2018

We are always out and about collecting photographs and leaflets at current events.  Last weekend we were at Processions 2018.

Processions was 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, Processions invited women and girls across the UK to come and mark this historic moment as part of a living portrait of women in the 21st century.

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

In Edinburgh, Processions started at the Meadows, up over George IV Bridge and passed the columns of the Scottish National Gallery wrapped in the suffragette colours for the event. Processions finished at Holyrood Park.
