Our artists have amazing stories to share – help us to amplify their voices!
As a member of the WSW community, you’re likely familiar with our mission statement: Women’s Studio Workshop envisions a society where women’s visual art is integral to the cultural mainstream and permanently recorded in history. We’re in the midst of growing and expanding the ways in which we’re ‘recording in history’ and we need your help.
For years we’ve been documenting resident artists’ time in the studios through still photography and articles on our blog, but it’s become clear that video is an invaluable tool for exposing our artists’ work to the widest audience possible. According to Cisco, video made up 73% of all consumer internet traffic in 2016 (source), and in a study by Forbes, 59% of senior executives surveyed said they would rather watch a video than read text.
What does that mean for us? Photographs are good but video is better, so we’re launching the #BehindTheScenesCampaign to allow us to better document the important work that happens at WSW. We’re asking our amazing community to help us raise $5,000 in just one day—and WE NEED YOU! Plus, when you give today, your gift goes twice as far; with the generous support of a matching sponsor each dollar you give is doubled up to $5,000.
Every gift goes towards purchasing video equipment, increasing the audience of the artists we serve, and recording their work in history.
