What is AWAD?

Awad is an international network that facilitates business and collaborations between and for its members

The Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD), est. 2009, is an international network that facilitates business and collaborations between and for members at all stages of their career as business owners. Our vision is to positively impact the enterprise of each member.

Each of the three chapters — London, New York and Global — has a monthly event and welcomes membership applications from women and women-identifying art dealers, advisors and gallerists based worldwide.

AWAD members work together in many ways, including doing business deals, gallery and pop-up exhibitions,  fairs, sharing of shipping costs to art fairs –  the list goes on. The organisation also offers masterclasses, networking events and online platforms. We know from our first decade of operation that by working together as a whole, our members, and their businesses, benefit.
