SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now) is a new international holiday that celebrates women artists. It will be an annual event taking place on the last Saturday of Women’s History Month (March). The first SWAN Day will take place on Saturday, March 29, 2008.
By focusing attention on the work of women artists, SWAN Day will help people imagine what the
world might be like if women’s art and perspectives were fully integrated into all of our lives.
The long term goal of SWAN Day is to inspire communities around the world to find new ways to
recognize and support women artists as a basic element of civic planning.
