Protests & Suffragettes
Protests & Suffragettes is a creative project led by a team of artists, activists, and local historians working to recover & re-voice the histories of women activists in Glasgow. We create ‘artWalks’, public art & creative interventions in the public realm, conduct archival research & oral histories, and produce educational resources. We also work with Wikipedia as knowledge activists. The project was founded in 2013 by socially-engaged artist t s Beall, and it has an active membership of keen volunteers.
We recently ran a Crowdfunder, Celebrating Scotland’s Suffragettes — and with the help of over 250 supporters, we raised an astonishing £20,000! 🎉 This enables us to take the stories of inspirational Scottish Suffragettes (and Suffragists) to classrooms and youth groups across Scotland. We’re now researching and producing Scottish Suffrage Education Packs – reaching 3,000+ young people across the country.
We are currently seeking 100 schools and youth groups across Scotland to partner with for the next part of our journey. Each school/group will receive a free Scottish Suffrage Education Pack, with learning resources designed by Braw Talent. If you are a teacher in a Scottish Primary of Secondary School or would like to recommend one who would be interested, please get in touch: see here for more on the Packs, and fill in this google form to register your interest.
