Processions 2018: Representing 131 years of T&T Women’s Talents!

We had an amazing time at the #processions march on Sunday! Thanks to all the groups who creatively added to our banner, & to the trustees & friends who joined us on the march. It was a privilege to celebrate both 100 years since the first women’s vote and the visionary women who set up T&T back in 1887! Lovely to meet so many great women & other community groups along the way too! Volunteers included Truly Johnston and Wei Lei, our amazing trustees, as well as fabulous T&T staff Jemma and Rochelle, and good friend and collaborator Annabel from Sands Film Studios and Bron from Community Southwark.

A big shout out to Trevor, a dedicated member of the Green Team, who helped us transport the huge banner to the procession, and of course to the many many people at T&T who contributed to this banner: the Happy Mondays, Tiny Talents, Create Space, Crafty Beasts, Rainbow Arts & Crafts, Adults with Autism and many many more!

Our resolution for this year: more celebration of our progressive history, more celebration of our amazing feminist heritage, and more promoting the kind of progressive vision of the future that spurred us on at the start.

1940s Rotherhithe

One of our friends from Rainbow Arts brought in this photograph of the 1940s. Does anyone recognise it? To the far right, with a play park on top (notice the railings to stop the ball going over the side – or the kids!) is one of T&T’s former buildings.

Back then, T&T owned several buildings – these days, we don’t own any, but are very happy to be in our beautiful Old Mortuary which we rent from Southwark Council.

Do you have any memories of playing at those old buildings? Tell us more!

A big T&T welcome to Sasha, who has just started as our new Programme Assistant. As you can see, she is already showing off her talents!

She’s putting the finishing touches to the banner created by all the fabulous women in various groups at T&T ready for the Procession 2018, celebrating 100 years of women’s right to vote.

As an organisation set up by visionary women in 1887 – who were ardent supporters of women’s rights, and their amazing talents – we’re very proud to be taking part.

We’ll post again with some pictures from the procession on Sunday. Meanwhile: congratulations and more power to everyone taking part!
