What can I help restore now?

We need your help in our quest to conserve and maintain artwork by women. Join us in restoring it to its original dignity. Exhibition is the crowning achievement of all AWA's projects. But our work does not end there! We also document the restoration's various phases via a full-scale photography and video campaign. Women restorers, art historians, museum executives, philanthropists and guides work to rescue or promote each artist and her newly restored work. Each project is supported by publications, signage, cultural and inaugural events and an international press campaign.
