SAWCC is continuing its signature salon-style meetings for creative South Asian women. These meetings are a space for nurturing our community and the informal sharing of creative projects or works-in-progress. This is our space to get up close and personal with fellow creative women and share our multi-disciplinary artistic visions and processes. The salon is open to South Asian women (artists, creative professionals and arts enthusiasts). If you are interested in presenting at a future salon event, please contact us via:

Our presenting artists are Anar Ali & Shilpa Mankikar.
