MOSTYN, in partnership with CALL - Culture Action Llandudno, is delighted to announce our support for PROCESSIONS, a mass participation artwork to mark the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, which gave the first British women the right to vote.
On Sunday 10th June 2018, join thousands of women to form four epic PROCESSIONS in the four political capitals of the UK – Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.
Women and girls, those who identify as women and non-binary individuals of all ages, persuasions, races, cultures, abilities, political affiliations and backgrounds are invited to create four living portraits of women today and walk with banners, pennants and flags they have made.
100 organisations will be working with 100 women artists and communities up and down the country in the lead-up to the event, as part of an extensive public programme of creative workshops to create 100 centenary banners which will form part of this vast artwork.
The banner-making workshops will focus on text and textiles, echoing the practices of the women’s suffrage campaign and will be spaces to consider the lives, ideas and hopes of women in the 21st century in Llandudno.
Artist Melanie Miller will be creating the Llandudno banner over the course of May.
Textile banner-making workshops
12th, 19th, 26th May, 11am-4pm at 10 Vaughan Street, Llandudno
