100 Years 100 Banners

One hundred women artists were commissioned to work with communities across the UK to create 100 centenary banners as part of PROCESSIONS.

Arts and community organisations worked with the artists up and down the country in an extensive public programme of creative workshops. The women who came together on the streets a hundred years ago made themselves visible with handmade flags, banners, pins and rosettes. The workshops focused on text and textiles, echoing the practices of the women’s suffrage campaign, and the banners made represented and celebrated the diverse voices of women and girls from different backgrounds.

Find out which groups and artists took part below. As part of the 100 Years 100 Banners programme, Artichoke commissioned 10 artists to create banners with UK organisations. See the artists here.
