In this special exhibition for SPILL, 100 banners created around the UK for PROCESSIONS will be shown as a trail at various locations across Ipswich.


PROCESSIONS was a mass participation artwork to celebrate 100 years of votes for women.

It was an open invitation to every woman and girl across the UK to get involved by being present on Sunday 10 June in one of the four UK capitals: Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh or London; inspired by the great processions of the suffragettes and suffragists in the years leading up to 1918, who marched to demand the vote.

You can view the map of the exhibition trail here.


Artichoke is a leading arts charity that works with artists to invade public spaces and put on extraordinary and ambitious events that live in the memory forever.


PROCESSIONS 2018 was commissioned by 14–18 NOW and produced by Artichoke.

PROCESSIONS was made possible with support from proud partner NatWest, the Government Equalities Office, the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England, and by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
