We had an absolutely fantastic time on the Processions 2018 march in London on Sunday 10 June.  Tens of thousands of women and girls came together in celebration of 100 years of female suffrage and we loved being part of it.  Here are some of our pictures from the day.

Thanks to photographers:  Clementine Talbott; Simon Fowler and Michaela Freeman.

All our Processions Banners are now ready to take to London to be held high in celebration of the 100th anniversary of achieving the first votes for women.  Thanks so much to all our participants in Southend, Peterborough and Liverpool for your brilliant input into what has been a fantastically enjoyable project, with brilliant results.

Each of the Metal sites has a busload of 50 participants each travelling to take part in the Processions event in London on Sunday 10 June – can’t wait to see all the banners together.

Here’s our Women of Essex banner – with artist Heidi Wigmore and some of the Essex women and girls who helped create it:-

METAL was delighted to be one of 100 UK arts organisations working with Artichoke to produce PROCESSIONS2018 (www.processions.co.uk), a mass participation artwork which marks 100 years since women were first given the right to vote in Britain.

PROCESSIONS was produced by Artichoke, the UK’s largest producer of art in the public realm, as part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s official arts programme for the First World War centenary.

All over the UK PROCESSIONS  invited women* and girls to come together on the streets of Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London on Sunday 10 June 2018 to mark this historic moment in a living, moving portrait of women in the 21st century – carrying banners made in partnership with women artists and makers
