AWITA is a non-profit membership organisation, open to women with a minimum of five years’ experience in the art world. The organisation brings together inspirational women working in the arts to share contacts, mentor one another, 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 meet academics in a lively, informal atmosphere. We believe in collaboration over competition.
We host events throughout the year, each aiming to address one or more of our three core tenets: networking, mentoring and professional development.
The network strives 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 for women.
Support collaboration to help existing projects as well as to help to create new projects.
Encourage the next generation of young women who are interested in pursuing a career in the art world.
Promote equal employment practices in the cultural sector and highlight the specific issues which affect women.
Open to women with a minimum of five years experience working in a relevant field, AWITA offers exclusive access for members to specially curated events, panel discussions, networks and professional development opportunities.
