Made In Corby PROCESSIONS banner starts national tour

From March to May 2018 Made In Corby created a textile banner with Corby women under the guidance of artists Carole Miles and Phiona Richards from The Eloquent Fold, which you can read about the making of HERE. It was specially commissioned for PROCESSIONS by Artichoke as one of 100 banners made by groups all over the country to mark the centenary of the first women getting the right to vote in 1918 as part of 14-18 NOW celebrations.

On Sunday 10th June we took a coach load of Corby women to process the banner through the streets of London in a mass participation artwork that was a truly wonderful moment for all involved (you can see how the day went HERE.) Since then it has taken pride of place at the Votes & Voices exhibition organised by Corby Women’s Labour Forum at Rooftop Arts Centre throughout July 2018, and now it is ready to go on a national tour!

At the moment we only know a couple of the exhibition dates, however we will keep updating this page with new dates as we learn which venues the Corby banner will be visiting and when.
