The International Women’s Day Arts Initiative

Posted filed underWomen.


The Global IWD Women’s Arts Initiative celebrates the collective creative ability of women. 2011 saw 100 years since the first International Women’s Day was held so to mark that special Centenary the ’100 Women, 100 Artworks’ and ’100 Women, 100 Stories’ initiative was run.

All the artworks (paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, drawings, sketches, collages …) and stories have been created by diverse women from around the world to inspire, challenge, entertain and provoke thought from a gender angle. The impressive artworks celebrate the artistic grace of women. The stories are of celebration, hurt, triumph, shock, humour, anger, remembrance and question. Enjoy !
This initiative has now been extended and is accepting continuing artwork and stories from women around the world. To find out more and contribute to the Global IWD Women’s Arts Initiative, click here.
