Organized by ZeeArts Gallery, ACW kicked off on March 5th and is open till March 8th, 2024, at the prestigious One&Only Royal Mirage-Dubai, showcasing the works of 108 women artists representing 108 countries.

Aligned with the spirit of International Women’s Day, Art Connects Women aims to provide optimal representation for women in the art sector while empowering them to reach new heights globally. This year, the event will embrace the theme “Inspire Inclusion,” focusing on renewal, growth, and progression.

The four-day extravaganza kicked off on March 5th with a grand opening night, welcoming 108 female artists from diverse cultures and backgrounds to mingle amidst a showcase of creative finesse. Each artist’s work will be immortalized in the annual Art Book titled ‘Women Artists around the World,‘ now in its fifth volume, preserving their legacy for future generations.

Education is at the forefront of Art Connects Women’s advocacy, with a series of conferences scheduled to equip women artists with essential skills and insights.

Adding a cultural dimension to the event, Ajman Tourism will host a cultural tour for participating artists at the Ajman Museum, showcasing Emirati heritage, culture, and hospitality.

As the curtains draw to a close, Art Connects Women will honor participating artists for their strength, courage, and messages of empowerment during the award ceremony. The award ceremony ensures that every woman gains that recognition that their selfless contributions are valued, and that they play a significant role in fostering a society that is inclusive, altruistic, and above all, human.

Zaahirah Muthy, Founder of Art Connects Women, expressed gratitude to partners for their support in advancing the event’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) mission. She commended the tireless efforts of talented individuals dedicated to creating a global impact.
