Justine Fletcher – mapping the 1260 who fought to vote

1260 for press release (1)

It is rather poignant that when around a quarter of our country didn’t vote, artist Justine Fletcher has created an exhibition representing the 1260 Wellington women who FOUGHT to vote.

In this interview Justine talks about her jewellery installation 1260 – Sign for Change which kicks off at the Toi Poneke Arts Centre from this Thursday 25 September – 18 October), that will pay tribute to 23,991 signatories of the landmark Third Suffrage Petition of 1893.
She also talks about her life as a busier mum than most, with two of her three children with disabilities and what becomes important to you then.
