artrepublic partners with The Girls Network for International Women’s Day hosting event to ‘Meet the Artists’

Meet local female artists inspiring a future generation of creative women!

artrepublic is joining forces with The Girls Network and giving successful female artists the opportunity to mentor girls from less advantaged backgrounds by hosting an event on Thursday 12th March – Meet the artists

Attendees can hear female artists discussing life as an artist, how they broke into the art world and how they are becoming mentors to young girls interested in the arts at our upcoming panel talk at the gallery.T

Whether you are intrigued about the life of their female artists, looking for inspiration on breaking into a creative industry or interested in becoming a mentor yourself, this event will be an insightful discussion, followed by a Q & A session and an opportunity to network with the artists, ambassadors from The Girls Network and like-minded women.

Statistics show there is a huge discrepancy with girls expressing an interest in the arts at school and subsequently going on to work in the art industry. Whether this is due to a lack of confidence, representation or opportunity, artrepublic are encouraging female artists to become mentors and positive role models to help creative young girls develop the skills and courage to realise their potential and shape their career.

From a 2019 survey across schools in Sussex, 25% of girls were interested in a career in the arts as their first career choice and artrepublic want to help make that dream a reality and make a positive difference for women and the art world!
