Banner Art

Extracts of nine of the  banner project 2008

Banner project (2008): In a modern democracy campaigning is a mechanism to raise awareness to the public and decisions makers on issues. The use of banners was once a prominent feature of a campaign. The Banner project represents the issues women have fought for over the past century. The 10 Banners were designed and painted for use during Victoria’s celebration of 100 years of women’s suffrage and as part of the celebrations they were carried in the streets at public events.  The Banners were created using the ‘Tuthill’ method, which is a traditional banner making method. These banners are housed in Fern’s Studio and used at public events such as Reclaim the Night Street marches. The project was funded by Gasworks art park and the State Government as part of the Art of Suff-Rage Project.
