What is SWAN Day?
“SWAN Day/Support Women Artists Now Day is a growing worldwide movement that spotlights the contributions of diverse women artists. It is an annual event that is celebrated as part of Women’s History Month on the last Saturday of March and during the surrounding weeks. Whether their art involves a longing for cross-cultural understanding, a passion for social justice, or a sheer love of the arts, women are expressing solidarity with each other and sharing their visions with their communities through a wide range of SWAN Day events.

In the first eight years there have been over 1,400 SWAN events in 26 countries. There have been festivals, film screenings, play readings, concerts, exhibits, community forums, and parties – all featuring women artists. The holiday was officially recognized by the Mayors of New York, Boston, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Portland, OR, and several smaller cities.

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. SWAN Day is administered by WomenArts through its websites at www.womenarts.org and www.swanday.org. Everyone is invited to help create this new holiday.”
