We are really happy to be working with these organisations who are widening the reach of PROCESSIONS.
At 64 Million Artists we believe that everyone is creative, and that when we use our creativity we can make positive change in our lives and the world around us. We feel everyone should have the opportunity to express themselves, to be an active participant in society, feel ownership and agency in their lives and be part of a community. We advocate for accessibility, equality and democracy and therefore support PROCESSIONS in inviting girls and women to come together to collaborate, express their creativity and have opportunities to explore what it means to be a woman today.
he British Army is delighted to support Processions. Last year, we celebrated the Centenary of 100 Years of Women in the Army and this national celebration of women’s vote marks another great milestone in achieving the equality of opportunity to which the British Army is wholly committed.
Birkbeck was one of the first Higher Education institutions in the UK to admit women students and played an important role in the work of pioneering, influential figures such as Rosalind Franklin, Dame Helen Gwynne-Vaughan, Helen Sharman and Dame Stephanie Shirley to thrive.

From our inception, Girlguiding has been promoting girls voices and encouraging girls and young women to play an active role in their community through social action and making positive changes to the lives of girls and young women.

Papatango champion new playwrights, share new plays with people who might otherwise struggle to access theatre, and provide free training and opportunities in playwriting. Our motto is simple: all you need is a story.

Processions is a brilliant platform for the voices of women and girls, past and present, and we support it wholeheartedly.
