Pocket Placards

Can small acts of resistance create big change? Artist Rachael Haynes uses these ideas in her interactive installation Threads of Resistance, drawing from language to capture the many voices of contemporary feminism.

Presented as part of New Woman, the installation includes text-based drawing and fabric works derived from Rachael’s research into feminist social history archives.

Families and children are invited to express their hopes and visions for a better future by creating their own mini protest banners with our Pocket Placard activity.

Be inspired by Rachael’s works and share your ideas for a better world as you play with text, shape and colour to make your own felt pocket placard. Contribute to the installation by sticking it to the felt board or put your pocket on your clothes to take it home with you.

Suitable for ages 5yrs+
