Suffragettes – animation for International Women’s Day

In the run up to International Women’s Day I gave a number of sound clips to one of the Archives+ Community Officers who was working with a group of young people.

They chose the clip of a suffragette from the ‘Voice in the Crowd’ collection and created the following animated clip.


The photographs below give an insight into how this clip was painstaking made using an iPad and a number of different apps.

Many thanks to everyone involved for all their hard work
