The Women in Art Foundation, an organization dedicated to improving the representation and appreciation of female artists, and co-host Equals, are the driving forces behind the WOMEN IN ART event. Nicky Huisman, Chairwoman of the Women in Art Foundation, states: “Inclusion of art created by women is essential for promoting equal opportunities and diversity in the art world. By better representing and appreciating female artists, the range and enrichment of art are expanded.” 

“We proudly present this event as a reflection of equality, inclusion, and opportunity promotion in the art world. At the same time, we provide women with an informal meeting place where they can share their love for art and work on a powerful professional network. With this event, we’re hitting two birds with one stone,” says Dieuwke van Buren, General Manager of Equals. 

The Women in Art event promises a unique and inspiring experience for both art enthusiasts and professionals in the art world.
