On 6 February 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the first British women the right to vote, a landmark for women's equality and British democracy. One hundred years on, 14-18 NOW and Artichoke, the UK's largest producer of art in the public realm, invite women* and girls across the nation to mark this moment by taking part in a major mass-participation artwork.
Help The Playhouse commemorate the 100th anniversary of women being given the right to vote by joining us for 8 weeks of free Workshops to make a Banner commemorating the Women's Suffrage Movement for Processions 2018.
Women of ages 15 to 95yrs (and over) are invited to join us participate in workshops to make a Banner commemorating the Suffrage Movement, the winning of the right to vote, and women's concerns in the 100 years since 1918.
From 11am - 1pm Saturdays, starting Saturday 7th April.
We are looking for 15 participants, of all skills and none.
Come along and learn to sew, learn about each other's experiences as women, and let's make the biggest and best banner for a major Processions event on 10th June.
Commissioned by 1418 NOW and produced by Artichoke the UK's largest producer of art in the public realm, we're delighted to be involved in this project, and invite women* and girls across the nation to mark this moment by taking part in a major mass-participation artwork. *those who identify as women or non-binary.
All participants in the workshops are then invited to attend the Processions event in Belfast (cost of transport provided) and to encourage friends and relations along to join the Procession on the day. Refreshments will be provided.
