Celebrating women-centered creativity and community since 1985!!!

Hello to our wonderful Women in the Arts Community!

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to make the difficult decision to move our festival online this year.  Please save the date and tune in for 2 live streaming events on the Friday and Saturday evening of the festival!

We will be hosting a Zoom gathering “Dinner” both nights beginning at 6pm. Drop in to see your friends! You’ll have the opportunity to connect with your favorite artists/vendors online throughout the event. Performances begin at 7:30pm with an artist Q&A to follow.

It is our hope that our alternate plan will still be able to create the beautiful feeling of community that WITA offers us every November, so we can all stay safe and return together in 2021!

Stay safe and well,

The 2020 Women in the Arts Committee
