Sandra Oh Supports SWAN Day Saturday March 29th

What on earth is SWAN day you might ask? Is it the day we pay tribute to really long necks or is it the day we pay homage to our beautiful feathered bird friends? Nope that is not it, even though long necks and swans definitely deserve our respect and praise.

No SWAN day is SUPPORT WOMEN ARTISTS NOW day! And this coming Saturday March 29th is the first Annual International SWAN Day!

We all need to support this new international holiday that celebrates women artists. As a symbol of international solidarity, over 100 SWAN Day events have been scheduled around the world. Even Sandra Oh is getting into the act with her inspiring SWAN Day Story

By focusing attention on the work of women artists, SWAN Day will help people imagine what the world might be like if women’s art and perspectives were fully integrated into all of our lives. The public is invited to attend SWAN Day events and to make donations to their favorite women artists. The long term goal of SWAN Day is to inspire communities around the world to find new ways to recognize and support women artists as a basic element of civic planning.

SWAN Day is a grassroots effort that is being coordinated by The Fund for Women Artists . Hats off to this wonderful organization and it’s founder Martha Richards. Everyone on the planet is invited to help create this new holiday!

And guess what! You don’t have to travel outside your city or even leave the comfort of your home to support SWAN Day. Just open up your laptop or start your computer and go to IN THE TRENCHES PRODUCTIONS (how’s that for good directions) and you will see the first entertainment website for women over 40. Check out films written, created, developed, produced, co-directed and edited by the 4 (over 40) women of In the Trenches Productions. They use their talent and creativity as filmmakers to create high quality short films that will resonate with women over 40 as well as entertain and inspire. They also use their acting artistry and sometimes star in the films. So support them and all the artists involved with their films and visit The In the Trenches Productions Entertainment Web Site to watch such fims as “Believe It Baby”, “The Forgotten Grave”, “Transitions”, A Host of Trouble”, and “Living Large with Less” as just one of your Swan Day Events.

Lets make Saturday March 29th 2008 a turning point for Women Artists!
