Women, Arts, and Social Change Initiative
Women, Arts, and Social Change is a public programs initiative that highlights the power of women and the arts as catalysts for change. Explore online series from this initiative, including Fresh Talk, The Tea, MakeHer Summit, Brews and Views, and Curative Collective Conversation.
Fresh Talk is the Women, Arts, and Social Change initiative’s signature program. This series features cause-driven conversations with artists, designers, activists, social innovators, and others. These virtual programs empower women, spark community involvement, and engage new audiences.
In this online series, women musicians perform original work via live-stream on the museum’s social media channels on the first Friday of the month. Each session includes a short interview, conducted over a cup of tea, which explores the artist’s creative process.
This monthly talk show, a spin-off of the 2021 GLAMi award-winning series BMA x NMWA, connects viewers to NMWA and its mission to champion women artists. Join as hosts from the museum interview special guests including artists, educators and curators; consider topics relevant to our world; and offer insight into collaborations that NMWA is fostering while its building is closed for renovation.

Jumpstart your weekend with art: every Friday at 5 p.m. (ET), join NMWA educators for informal 45-minute art chats about selected artworks from NMWA’s collection. Each week a new sampling of artworks will be considered. You can even enjoy your favorite happy hour drink or snack during the sessions.
Join a virtual “tour” from home! During this interactive, docent-led presentation, participants will look closely and discuss artworks from the museum’s collection. Join in as often as you like—docents select the artworks, so tour content will vary.
