PROCESSIONS is a mass participation artwork taking place simultaneously across the four UK capitals -  Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London on Sunday 10 June 2018.

On 10 June, women (including those who identify as women and non-binary) and girls in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London will walk together in this celebratory living artwork.

Participants will each be given a wrap to wear in either green, white or violet - the suffragette colours. They will be choreographed to walk in stripes in a flowing river of colour through the city streets, creating a living portrait of women and girls in the 21st century.

As part of the project, 100 organisations across the UK - including Historic England, Girlguiding, The Muslim Women’s Network, The Scottish Refugee Council and Women in Prison – have been commissioned to create handmade banners in collaboration with female artists, which participants will carry on the processions.
