Support women (artists).
We couldn't have been more excited to partner up with Tressa and Don from No Name Players for our January Networking Happy Hour. The intent behind SWAN Day—supporting women artists—fits in perfectly with our mission of supporting women entrepreneurs. And seriously, the fact that Pittsburgh has one of the most epic events around the world is just plain cool.
SWAN Day Pittsburgh 2013 will mark No Name Players’ 5th annual SWAN Day event!
This event will feature world premiere works by Pittsburgh's female musicians, dancers, poets, theatre artists, visual artists, filmmakers, and fashion designers. What makes No Name Players' SWAN Day event especially unique is that every work will be inspired by interviews with girls and women from the Pittsburgh area.
There is no other event like it in Pittsburgh!
SWAN (Support Women Artists Now) Day, founded in 2008, is an international holiday honoring women in the arts. In 2012, SWAN Day co-founder Martha Richards named No Name Players one of seven international SWAN Day partners, alongside producers in Kenya, Bulgaria, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Florida.
Women artists in the spotlight.
