Happy SWAN Day 2014!!

Thanks so much to all of you who are participating in the Seventh International SWAN Day. Whether you are organizing an event, attending an event, spreading the word, or giving a gift to your favorite woman artist, you are part of a growing world-wide movement.  There are SWAN 2014 events all over the U.S. and in places as far flung as Australia, Bulgaria, Kenya, Russia, Canada, Italy, and Northern Ireland. (See the list below.)

In all of these communities women are gathering to bring harmony to the world through music, to build movements that inspire us to dance, to share pictures that open our eyes, and to tell stories that heal our hearts.

As women and as artists, we take this troubled world in our hands and work to make it better. When we celebrate SWAN Day, we can feel the power of our joy, our commitment, and our immense collective creativity.

Thanks to all of you for your perseverance in these challenging times. Whether your celebration is large or small today, I hope that on SWAN Day you will feel the energy of women artists and allies all over the world who are cheering for you to reach your full potential.
Sending Lots of SWAN Love to All of You,
Martha Richards, Executive Director, WomenArts

News and Upcoming Events
for
Coalition Organization Members!

We are so pleased to announce our newest Affiliate Member: the Drama Desk. Welcome!!

We have also just started our new online Women in the Arts & Media Communal Calendar. Over the next few months, we will be contacting and including the calendars of every major arts and media organization and every major women's organization: all events, openings, and deadlines. This will serve a dual purpose: 
1) terrific information about what's presently going on; and 2) a place to check what else might be happening on any date in the future when planning--the ultimate Blackout Calendar. This is a Google calendar, and so can be added to your own Google calendar. Please send all events to us at: calendar@womenartsmediacoalition.org or submit it on our website. It will take a few months to get it going full speed, but all of you can help us make this calendar THE central place for events and programs of interest. 

Below, we have two FREE events and one where Coalition members get a discount.  REMEMBER:  if you are a member of any of our member orgs, you are a member of the Coalition!  
Check the offers out below, and find more member org events on our Online Calendar. If you have any problem reading any of these flyers, you can see them on our Online Blog. Some member org events are livestreamed online and/or archived on youtube and/or the organization's website, so there's so great content available to you, even if you're not able to attend events  Keep checking.

Hope to see you soon,
