The Sudanese Women Artists Associate celebrate their first anniversary on
the 1st of August 2001. As part of the celebration the Associate is
hosting an art exhibition for their 100 members at the Sudan National
Museum, Khartoum, Sudan. Sudanese Women Artists Associate is a non-profit non- political associate, located in Khartoum. Founded by Teyseer Abdelgadir Salim (1998 Art graduate), and adopted by a group of young women artists in 2000.
The Sudanese Women Artists Associate has established the following goals:
To encourage and support women artists to increase their artistic activities and
have more constructive role, to be considered as an active group among the art
movement in Sudan.
To serve as a forum for dialogue between artists and the community, in order to help
develop public awareness and recognition of Sudan art and culture.
Give the public a chance to observe artists at work or exhibit in more accessible
places to the average person so that they can appreciate art better.
Communicate with associations or organizations with similar goals, in order to
observe their experiences and exchange information .
Organize trips around the Sudan, travailing exhibitions (art classes for children
and women, workshops, lectures) and help reserve and document the local cultures
at every region we visit.
Participate in humanitarian issues, by organizing workshops and exhibit artwork
that represents our opinion.
