Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh & London – televised live on BBC1

In 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave British women the right to vote and stand for public office. One hundred years on, we are inviting 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, 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 suffrage movement – the PROCESSIONS will appear as a flowing river of colour moving through the city streets.

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.

One hundred female artists are being commissioned to work with organisations and communities across the UK to create one hundred centenary banners as part of an extensive public programme of creative workshops.

To help support this initiative, OOH companies are donating media space across the UK.
