In conversation: Jean Cameron and Claire Hunter
PROCESSIONS, one of the biggest mass participation artworks ever, celebrates one hundred years of votes for women.
One hundred women artists were commissioned to work with organisations and communities across the UK to create one hundred centenary banners for PROCESSIONS, as part of an extensive public programme of creative workshops to accompany four PROCESSIONS taking place simultaneously in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London on 10 June, to create a living portrait of women in the 21st century.
Join textile artist Clare Hunter ( lead artist for PROCESSIONS) and Jean Cameron, Joint National Coordinator (Scotland) for PROCESSIONS as they reflect on the beautiful hand-made banners carried by the Suffragettes, those that were created in 2018 for PROCESSIONS, and the women and girls who made them, to create a powerful and vibrant visual snapshot of women’s history, achievements and aspirations.
