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
