Special Greeting from Martha Richards
Executive Director of WomenArts
On behalf of WomenArts, I send greetings
to all of the women artists and their supporters who are
celebrating the third international Support Women Artists Now Day.
When we celebrate SWAN Day, we are coming together to
use our creativity for positive change. We are bringing new
harmony to the world through our songs and building
movements infused with the grace of our dance. We are
making pictures that open people's eyes, and telling
stories that heal people's hearts.
On SWAN Day we celebrate our global unity and also the
unique individual voices of the women artists next door.
There are thousands of talented women artists all over the
world who are making wonderful contributions to their
communities year after year. SWAN Day is a day to recognize
and thank these women.
Please take some time to make a direct connection with
at least one woman artist on SWAN Day. Talk to her in
person, give her a call, write her a note, or send her a gift -
do anything that shows that you appreciate her creativity.
There is tremendous power in these simple acts of respect
and recognition, and they provide models of the supportive
attitudes and behavior that we want to spread around
Thanks so much to all of you for making SWAN Day 2010 a wonderful success. We encourage you to seek out the work of women artists on
SWAN Day and every day. Together we will build a world
where women artists get the respect they deserve.
Best Wishes for Happy, Peaceful, and Prosperous SWAN Day,
Martha Richards Executive Director
