SWAN Day or Support Women Artists Now Day is a new international holiday which takes place every year on the last Saturday in March. The purpose of SWAN Day is to recognize and honor the cultural contributions of women artists** and their power to bring about positive change in society.

SWAN Day was initiated by -> WomenArts and -> WITASWAN. 2008 was the first year in which SWAN Day was celebrated. The response worldwide was enormous: over 160 events tok place in eleven countries on four continents. In 2009 there were over 170 SWAN Day events in twelve countries.
