.processions.

“BANNER EXHIBITIONS As part of PROCESSIONS, we commissioned 100 women artists to work with organisations and communities across the UK to make 100 unique centenary artworks. The banner-making groups included women with lived experience of the criminal justice system, refugees, schoolgirls, community champions, members of the LGBTQI+ community, survivors of abuse, young mothers, women living with dementia, and many others.

“Now the banners are on the move and will be on display as part of Ipswich’s SPILL festival (25th October – 4th November) and Birmingham’s Ikon Gallery (23rd October – 20th January).
