Spotlight on Women Artists

This year, SJAC is proud to join PRUDE Inc., the Saint John Community Loan Fund and the Lorenzo Society in celebrating International Women’s day. For the next month, we will feature local women artists who accepted our invitation to share their work and thoughts on this year’s theme, ‘Choose to Challenge’.

Celebrating International Women’s Day: March 8, 2021

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.

For the last four years in honour of International Women’s Day, PRUDE Inc. has organized a celebration of women and their achievements here in Saint John. Each year the event grows and we learn so much from the women around us, how to overcome barriers, meet challenges and rise above it.

This year our event will look a little different but we are just as determined to shine a light on the women in our community. PRUDE Inc., the Saint John Community Loan Fund, the Lorenzo Society and the Saint John Arts Centre have partnered to bring you these stories, connections and journeys virtually.

“A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. So, let’s all choose to challenge. Join us in celebrating International Women’s Day, not just on March 8th, but every day.”
