A couple of weeks back it was the closing celebration of A.T Boyle’s brilliant Colours, Community and Chemistry exhibition at People’s History Museum.
We set up a craft table and visitors made the last few tributes to hang on our community craftivist Big-Up Female Boffins banner.
We discussed the significance of colours and protest, & how votes-for-women movements used colour to brand and market their cause. Millicent Fawcett’s suffragist organisation adopted red, white and green; while the Pankhurst suffragettes adopted purple, white and green.
Here are some pics from the afternoon:
Thank you to everyone who made a tassel, pompom or boffin tribute for the banner 🙂
