SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now) is the official international day that celebrates women artists. It is celebrated yearly across the world on the last Saturday of March.
The month of March has been dedicated Women in History by highlighting and promoting the contribution of women in history, culture and society.
SWAN Day was initiated in 2008 by the international community of women artists called WomenArts.
The main purpose of celebrating this day is to promote diversity of women’s creativity and recognizing the importance of their presence and visibility in public spaces.
This year, on March 28, SWAN Day will be celebrated for the first time in Prague.
Our hope is that SWAN Day will continue in the future by bringing women artists together and presenting their works through various art forms.
SWAN Day is organized in Prague by LAVU and Raddoxstudio.
Public donations can be made personally to artists present at the event.
