In this first episode of our re-launch we interviewed Annya Sand co-founder of the WAAW London a new initiative aiming to create more representation for female artists inviting London Art's galleries and non-commercial art institutions to exclusively showcase women artists during the week of the 8th to 15th of June.
'What I try to do is to find a sustainable solution to the lack of representation of female artists... If a gallery says no to us we don’t let them off the hook so easily, and I believe we have right to do so.
We would ask them to exhibit female artists at another time in the year and perhaps host a talk to highlight and talk about the important of representation of female artists. We offer our platform to advertise this potential initiative throughout the year so that galleries feel encouraged to make their programme more inclusive….
By improving the situation for female artists we are ultimately improving the generation that is being brought up by them, and in turn our societies mental state and outlook of what’s fair and what's not' - Annya Sand
