Women’s Arts Association Wales was founded in order to offer women more opportunities to exhibit their work and as a protest against inequalities in the arts.
WAAW made it possible to support women to participate, enjoy, and practice in visual and creative arts and to exhibit in all disciplines. This also provided recreational activity with a view to improving their lives. The organisation has Charity status governed by the Charities Act 1993 and has a large membership. WAAW have a website and social media platforms where exhibits and current issues of interest can be found and enjoyed.
