From March 1 to March 8, 2019, museums, universities, libraries, galleries, community centers and other cultural institutions around the globe are invited to participate in 'AWA around the world' for Women’s Day, by organizing the screening of one of the AWA’s documentaries on the restoration of art by women, e.g. Invisible Women or When the World Answered (or another of the video-options that can be downloaded below). After the program, hosts are encouraged to facilitate a discussion aimed at triggering awareness about the research, restoration or exhibition of art by women. By launching an appeal for the creation of 'live' events across the globe, we aim to create a connection between art lovers and friendly institutions that share Advancing Women Artists’ goal of rediscovering the cultural heritage of little known women artists.
To help hosts prepare
All of us at AWA in Florence are happy to provide additional feedback regarding the creation of these 'satellite events'. We encourage hosts to print out our informational pack: About AWA, to be in the loop about past and future happenings. Hosts interested in presenting our Art Angel Program as part of their awareness-raising event, can download a printer-friendly version here.
