100 Banners: Callout
Published: Tue 28 Nov 2017
Come and make history! Celebrate 100 years of votes for women by helping to create a banner inspired by the suffrage movement.
Please note: this workshop is now full.
artsdepot is part of a London-wide project with Digital Drama to make 100 banners to commemorate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The 100 banners will be displayed at events in March including at the March4Women, at the Royal Albert Hall and at the Southbank Centre's WOW Festival.
An initial, artist-led workshop will take place on Sat 20 Jan (2.30pm - 5pm). After that, we'll work as a group to complete the banner in workshops on Sat 27 Jan, Sat 3 and Sat 10 Feb (2.30pm - 5pm). The workshops are free to all who would like explore women’s history with us; you can come to as many or as few of these sessions as you like. Please feel free to bring along with you a small piece of fabric that has some significance to you if you would be happy to donate it to be included in a banner. No previous knowledge or experience required.
