Isabelle Spike

WomenArts is proud to introduce our new Associate Director, Isabelle Spike. Isabelle will be focusing on developing our social media campaigns and finding ways to increase participation in Support Women Artists Now SWAN Day. If you follow WomenArts-SWAN Day on Facebook, you have probably noticed that we have been much more active in recent weeks. Isabelle is posting fun, inspiring items every day, and our fan list is growing fast.

Please help us out by sharing our posts and encouraging your friends to “Like” us on Facebook. Also, please feel free to use our Contact Us form to send Isabelle links to pictures, SWAN events or other information that you would like us to consider for our Facebook page, blog or newsletters. We are especially interested in good pictures of women artists in action, inspiring videos, and descriptions of your SWAN events.

An artist herself, Isabelle plays the violin, writes and directs for theater, wrote her college thesis on Ibsen and Feminism, and loves visual art and design in all forms. She has taught music and theater, and she is passionate about women artists and their role as change-makers in the world. She has honed her business and marketing skills working with other non-profits, lobbying for clean energy, and running a successful catering business.
