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 trade network founded on collaboration and life-long learning. Our MISSION is to facilitate 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.
The global network has multiple online events each month and, as of 2024, a return to regular monthly events in our hubs (currently London and New York City). The online-accessible events program offers: a monthly #AWADinDiscussion and several monthly closed-door peer-to-peer #AWADroundtable sessions. In-person events embrace art and networking alike, with occasions taking place in New York, London, Miami, Los Angeles and beyond.
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.
