Thank you Chloe Jamieson!

We would like to wish our current volunteer Gallery Assistant Chloë Jamieson a fond farewell as she leaves us to embark in her new job role as Explainer at Hillsborough Castle! Chloe will be completing an MA in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies later on in the summer.

She will be greatly missed by all at the gallery, we wish her all the best for the future and look forward to seeing her on the other side of the reception desk at our Late Night Art openings in future!

ABOUT PROCESSIONS 2018

Thousands of women and girls from across the UK will walk together in public processions on Sunday 10 June, forming a living portrait of women in the 21st century and a visual expression of equality, strength and cultural representation. PROCESSIONS celebrates the fight for suffrage and expresses what it means to be a woman today.

Text and textiles are at the heart of the project. In the months leading up to the processions, the public are taking part in a nationwide creative programme of banner-making. In a series of special commissions, 100 artists are working with community groups across the country to deliver expressive banners and iconic artworks that echo the artistic practices of the women’s suffrage campaign and yet are grounded in women’s experience today. PROCESSIONS also uses the history of female suffrage to inspire women to vote and stand for office.
