SWAN = Support Women Artists Now
March is Statera's favorite month of the year! Why? Not only is it Women's History Month, but we also celebrate International Women's Day on March 8th and International SWAN Day on March 30th!
As part of our ongoing efforts to increase the visibility of women artists, StateraArts puts the spotlight on women artists every March and April through Support Women Artists Now Day. SWAN Day is an annual international celebration of women’s creativity and gender parity activism. International SWAN Day events are already underway and you're invited to join us! It’s fun and easy to get involved. Watch the video below!
StateraArts launched a campaign in January 2019 designed to AMPLIFY the voices and work of women artists as part of SWAN Day. The goal is to flood social media every Sunday with images, quotes, and work from women artists.
Want to get involved in this powerful social action? It’s easy! UPLIFT and AMPLIFY a woman artist using the hashtag #SWANSunday. Post about them and their work. Pick a new artist every Sunday!
A Note on Inclusion at StateraArts
Women: Statera recognizes the limiting nature of the binary use of woman. We serve and welcome anyone on the gender spectrum who identifies either always or some of the time as a woman. We also serve and welcome those who identify as non-binary.
Intersectionality: StateraArts works through an intersectional lens for gender parity. We understand and acknowledge that systems of oppression and discrimination are interdependent and span all social categorizations such as race, class, gender, ability, parental status, size, age, and sexual orientation as they apply to a given individual or group. Addressing one spoke of systematic discrimination or disadvantage means holistically addressing them all.
