POWarts, the Professional Organization for Women in the Arts, was founded in 2008 to champion the professional lives of women in the art world. By offering an active calendar of events, panel discussions, and mentoring opportunities, POWarts helps women learn, connect, and build their careers. At POWarts, we believe that generosity and leadership can, and should, go hand in hand. Our programming stems from the knowledge that art and business are not separate; rather, understanding business is vital to creating spaces for art, and women, to thrive.
