TAKE TO THE STREETS!
TAKE PART IN A PROTEST MARCH FOR WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE IN AMSTERDAM AND FIND OUT WHO TOOK TO THE STREETS IN THE LAST CENTURY.
In this exhibition, the struggle of activists from the past and present comes to life. It focuses on the events leading up to the women’s right to vote in 1919 and the stories of the women and men who fought it during the first feminist wave.
Today’s activists look back at the struggles of the past and share how this is still relevant for activists of today.
WHAT DOES 100 YEARS OF WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE MEAN TO YOU?
We asked activists of today to give their perspective on what we can still learn from our history of activism and how it reflects on their work today.
Burobraak was commissioned to execute the visual communications and both spacial and graphic design of the exhibition in the OBA central public library in Amsterdam. Smaller versions of the expo will travel along various neighbourhood branches of OBA during 2020.
In addition to the exhibition we designed a Women’s suffrage walk through Amsterdam.
Part of this walk is the route of the “Great Demonstration” of 1916 and it passes buildings which played a key role in the struggle and the lives of those who fought for it.
We developed both a Dutch and an English version of the Suffrage Walk booklet.
