Meet the women AWA ‘turns to’ in town. These advocates of our mission and goals work in various fields. They are art historians, journalists, tour guides, artists, restorers and more... Some work in higher education or the museum sector. All are art lovers. All believe in speaking out to the benefit of art by women. As our ‘local group’, the Florence Council of Advisors offers consultancy on various in-town issues, whether we searching for a business sponsor or seeking support in managing event logistics. They are our first ‘on the ground’ platform for spreading information and extending invitations. Communication becomes a ‘capillary’ science thanks to this lively group of international, professional women.
