A little over one year ago Meganda Films started to subscribe to WomenArts, an organization based in San Francisco. Their monthly newsletters are must reads and the stories of women making moves in the arts is inspiring. This Saturday March 31, is SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now). It will also be celebrated throughout March and April 2012.
By focusing attention on the work of women artists, SWAN Day helps people imagine what the world might be like if women’s art and perspectives were fully integrated into all of our lives. People celebrate this new holiday by participating in SWAN Day events and by making donations to their favorite women artists. The long-term goal of SWAN Day is to inspire communities around the world to find new ways to recognize and support women artists as a basic element of civic planning.
For SWAN Day events in your area you can check out the SWAN Day Calender.
WomenArts is a worldwide community of artists and allies that works for empowerment, opportunity, and visibility for women artists. We provide a variety of free online networking, fundraising and advocacy services, and we organize Support Women Artists Now Day (SWAN Day), an annual international holiday celebrating women’s creativity in all its forms. We believe in the power of women artists to create, connect, and change the world
Spread the word! This Saturday and everyday celebrate Women in the Arts.
