POW! are looking for banner makers and walkers!
Would you or your group, like to make a banner and be part of our International Women's Day procession for the official launch this years POW! Festival? Are you part of a group that supports or celebrates women's issues, or, would you and a group of friends like to make a banner to celebrate inspirational women and be part of our procession?
If you would like to find out more about how to be involved in this project and meet lead artist Jessica Voorsanger (jessicavoorsanger.co.uk), please come to a meeting at
Turner Contemporary on Friday 18th January, from 1-2pm.
This years POW! 2019 official launch will open with a procession of banners created by women from local organisations around Thanet. On Friday 8th March, the different groups with their banners, will meet and will form a procession leading to Turner Contemporary. This will be the main focal point of the launch of POW! 2019.
In 2018, as part of the Artichoke / 14 – 18 Now Festival, artist Jessica Voorsanger worked with Turner Contemporary in collaboration with a group of local artists and makers to create the banner for this event. POW! 2018 commissioned artist Tracie Peisley to work alongside her, and with a small group of people from the community in Thanet, created the POW! Banner which then took part in the procession, in London.
