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 31, SWAN Day will be celebrated for the second 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.

‘Video interviews’

‘Video interviews’ compiles statements of women artists who refer to body, sexuality, positioning of women artists in relation to public space, their presence and visibility, the effect on the way society views women today, and imbalance of gender representation within the art. Artists who participated in this video work in different fields and they come from different countries and cultural experiences. ‘Video interviews’ was screened on the occasion of celebration of the 8.
