10th June 2018 all-day

Join the procession

We’ve teamed up with Artichoke to offer your unit the chance to take part in PROCESSIONS – one of the largest participatory artworks ever created.

What’s happening?

On Sunday 10 June 2018, thousands of women and girls will form four epic processions in the four capitals of the UK. In Scotland, the event will take place in Edinburgh and we’re hoping to have a fantastic guiding presence. Given green, white or violet to wear, together you’ll create waves of colour as you celebrate the centenary of women’s suffrage. Green, white and violet are the colours of the suffrage movement whose initials stood for “Give Women Votes”.

The event is being organised by arts organisation Artichoke, who work with artists to create extraordinary and ambitious public art.
