Join Us for the Tenth International
Support Women Artists Now Day!

SWAN Day/Support Women Artists Now Day is an international holiday designed to showcase the power and diversity of women’s creativity. Be a part of SWAN Day by creating or participating in a local event or online activity that celebrates women artists!

The official date for the Tenth International SWAN Day is Saturday, March 25, 2017, but please feel free to celebrate it any time during March or April that is convenient for you. The spirit of SWAN events is far more important than the exact dates.

There have been over 1,500 SWAN Day events in 36 countries in the first nine years of this new holiday. To get a sample of the range of the events, please visit our List of SWAN Day 2016 Events or browse through the descriptions of SWAN events in the WomenArts Blog.  You are welcome to post events on our SWAN Calendar throughout the year.
