#EachforEqual hero creation by Ms Snaps

Celebrating women street artists worldwide

Can you imagine if we saw more street art by women creatives tantalizingly adorning receptive communities around the world? What if we could increase the visibility of women street artists so they became so popular they could earn a good commercial living from their passion?

An ambitious mission? Absolutely!

Possible? Hell yeah!

To support this exciting mission, we invite female street artists worldwide to create exciting street art to support the International Women’s Day (IWD) campaign theme. The mission is supported by the all-female street artist group International Women’s Crew. Check out an article from International Women’s Crew founder, Ms Snaps, to understand the state of play for women street artists worldwide.

Showcasing women's creativity and equality messages

Women street artists worldwide were invited to enter the IWD Street Art Competition across three categories:

  • IWD themed mural 
  • Happy International Women’s Day murals
  • Women’s Equality statement murals - which is an ongoing category, so post your women's empowerment street art on Instagram using #IWDstreetart 

Exciting equality murals provide great awareness raising 

To support the IWD 2020 theme, here was a fabulous creation from Samu in London at Capital City Academy.

About International Women's Crew

International Women's Crew is made up of eight female street artists from all over the world. They came together after Ms Snaps held a worldwide paint jam for International Women’s Day in 2018. Since then, the group has collaborated each March to celebrate International Women's Day and they've subsequently been commissioned for various projects world-wide, raising the profile of female artists and creating opportunities for women in street art to collaborate. Their art is larger than life!
