The Association of Women in the Arts will bring together inspirational women working in the arts to share contacts, mentor each other, collaborate and create a new kind of community. We want gallery owners to connect with curators, arts journalists to connect with dealers, art advisors to share with academics in a lively, informal atmosphere. The network will strive to:
Ensure greater recognition of and support for the achievement of women in the art world.
Help create a market aimed at increasing the opportunities available.
Support collaboration to expand existing and to create new projects
Encourage the next generation of young women interested in pursuing a career in the art world.
Promote equal employment practices in the cultural sector and highlight the specific issues facing women.
