Statera to Partner with WomenArts for SWAN Day

February is all about LOVE and PARTNERSHIP. That's why we are so excited to announce that Statera Foundation is joining forces with WomenArts to organize the 11th Annual SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now Day)! 

SWAN Day is an international holiday designed to showcase the power and diversity of women's creativity. Its also a great fit for the Statera mission. Combining our organizational strength expands our reach and exemplifies the collaborative and grassroots nature of SWAN Day.

Join us! The official date for the Eleventh International SWAN Day is Saturday, March 31, 2018, but since many people will be observing religious holidays that weekend, please feel free to host events any time during March or April. The spirit of SWAN events is far more important than the exact dates. Artists can also enter the SWAN Day Song Contest and the SWAN Day Photo Contest for cash prizes.

There have been over 1,700 SWAN Day events in 36 countries in the first ten years of this new holiday. To get a sample of the range of the events, please visit the List of SWAN Day 2017 Events or browse through the descriptions of SWAN events in the WomenArts Blog. Artists and arts organizations are welcome to post their women-led events on the SWAN Calendar throughout the year.
