  • Need


    In 2017, there is NO funding for a Women's Arts organisation like us. There's nothing for our open shows. We are genuinely voluntary. We still have expenses.


    We have potentially stunning open art shows for International Women's Day and these need small expenses, some technical like posters and hanging equipment, and to help women who are learning to curate, a little for openings and diverse performance artists which will help women celebrate IWD and women artists to be enjoyed with respect.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Stage stunning exhibitions and events for International Women's Day in Wales for 2017


    » Hold 3 open exhibitions
    » Engage more women through events
    » Publicise IWD events in Wales for women in the arts

    Footfall at exhibitions & events, positive feedback

  • Impact


    More and diverse women engaging in the arts, reaching out to new women artists and encouraging creativity within the network of women in the arts in Wales.
    We demonstrate this by our membership which increases slowly and steadily.


    There is a small risk that we don't have enough money. We have solved this through entry fees to cover basic costs.


    Donors will of course be invited to attend opening events and exhibitions - and women can ask for an entry form for any IWD 2017 exhibition. We run a website, Twitter and Facebook which report on activity. After, a one-off report will be emailed to all donors.
