The South Asian Womxn’s Creative Collective (SAWCC) has served South Asian womxn since 1997 and has earned a reputation for showcasing cutting-edge work that deals intelligently with issues of gender and cultural representation.

Our public programs present the creative work of South Asian womxn in multiple disciplines through salons, talks, workshops, readings, screenings, performances, and exhibitions.

SAWCC connects womxn of South Asian descent with links to various communities and encourages their growth as artists by providing a platform to exchange ideas and feedback on their creative work and network with other South Asian womxn artists, educators, community workers, and professionals.

Members include those who identify as South Asian women, femmes, queer, trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people.
