Port Art Women
I was recently invited to join a fascinating group of women artists, Port Art Women, whose main objective is to build bridges and support well-known and undiscovered women artists from all over the world.
Port Art Women is an Italian-English project created by two women, Ornella Urpis, sociologist at the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the University of Trieste, and Carlotta F Sassoon, Graphic & Digital Designer. These two women love art, technology, human society and believe in the value of art for human beings. The Port Art Women concept was born during the 2020 Covid Pandemic that both women experienced in different cities and countries: Trieste in Italy and London in the U.K. The life of the late Barbara Fornasir, a well-known architect of art from the Porto Vecchio of Trieste, was the inspiration of this project.
Port Art Women offers an online platform where women artists from different places and cultures can share and support each other in their artistic endeavour while striving to improve the condition of women in the world.
It is therefore my pleasure to announce that I am now part of this fascinating project for women artists of the world with a dedication page on the platform. I am very much looking forward to meeting in person one of the two women who started this initiative, Carlotta F. Sassoon, in London at the Preview evening of the upcoming Flux Exhibition on the 18th of May.
