International Women’s Day 2020: women with influence

Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict (2015)

A week-long programme featuring panel discussions and a film screening, as well as workshops and courses. From patrons to historians, the Royal Academy of Art celebrate the influential women working to support art and artists.

In this programme of events to mark International Women’s Day 2020, the RA examine the impact women have had on the arts historically and today. Join the upcoming events to explore how women are influencing future women of the art world through mentoring, visibility, promotion and access.

Within the programme the RA will be asking if it is the responsibility of women in influential positions to actively support and represent women in the arts. Where are we now and what more can be done to inspire and engage the next generation of women within the art world?
