Over the years we have established international links with women from Nigeria, America, Australia, Senegal and Sweden and in the first three instances held exhibition in these countries in order to
promote our objectives, which are:-
- To enhance the participation of women in the world of art and science, thereby placing them
squarely in the development of society.
- To promote the visual arts, as a vital instrument in national development.
- To bring together women artists and scientists from diverse backgrounds to share personal and cultural experience. With this we intend to promote the growth of universal understanding and tolerance.
- To encourage the process of networking through which our participants can benefit from further collaborations.
With the children’s workshops we encourage innovative thinking and influence good practice and creative solutions which we hope, will build confidence and success to all those who participate. Similarly with adults we work on the creative process, learning new skills, generating ideas and following through on implementation, We share knowledge and creativity to support the art and science link in our daily lives.
