Peak is one of 100 UK arts organisations commissioned to take part in this landmark project, conceived and organised by Artichoke. We are encouraging local women to work alongside lead artist Bettina Reeves and make suffrage ‘banners’. Workshops will focus on text and textiles, echoing the practices of the women’s suffrage campaign, and the banners made will represent and celebrate the diverse voices of women and girls from different backgrounds.
On Sunday 10 June 2018, women involved in the Peak ‘Processions’ project will travel to Cardiff to take part in a huge women-only procession alongside other women from Wales forming a living portrait of women in the 21st century. With simultaneous marches happening across Edinburgh, Belfast and London, the PROCESSIONS will appear as a flowing river of colour through the city streets.
Processions is an opportunity for women and girls to learn more about the struggles of those who fought for rights that we take for granted, to explore their own creativity and develop skills.
Sessions are FREE but places are limited. Support for travel costs to Cardiff available.
