Artists are awesome!

Everyone can be an Artist and the Arts – whether musical, visual, digital  or performing – play an important role in Movements for social change.

We commend and recognize Artists for their audacity to dream, commitment to help create dynamic social justice, and dedication to helping make the world a better place… especially for women and girls!
