Part of the PROCESSIONS, a UK- wide mass participation artwork to mark 100 years of women’s suffrage, produced by Artichoke and commissioned by 14-18 NOW, based on an idea by Darrell  Vydelingum.

ICR, working alongside the artist Rita Duffy, involved over 30 women participants from various locations across Northern Ireland (including from six villages of the Peninsula in Ards and North Down Borough Council, Armagh and Belfast) in the design and creation of a banner for the Belfast march. Participants were also taken on heritage and arts-related site visits, which facilitated experiential learning on suffragettes, suffragists, democratic principles and art in the public space.
