Who We Are
The Association of Women in the Arts (AWITA) came about through informal meetings amongst friends in the art world, who met on a regular basis to share knowledge, expertise and contacts. These friends then decided to develop these meetings into what AWITA is today.
Since its beginning in February 2016, AWITA’s main focus has been to bring inspirational women together, and this remains our core strength to this day. AWITA’s membership includes: gallerists; curators; art advisers; academics; as well as auction house, museum, public sector and art fair professionals.
Our advisory board is comprised of exceptional women who have successfully developed careers in their respective fields. AWITA board members have extensive experience in the management, leadership and promotion of the visual arts.
