About the Canadian Women Artists History Initiative
The Canadian Women Artists History Initiative was begun as a response to the absence of a national forum for discussion and research on historical women’s art in Canada. Our mandate is three-fold:
Research: to promote research on a wide range of historical Canadian women artists, through conferences, workshops, research, and publications.
Documentation Centre: to support this research through the creation of paper files. the Documentation Centre is open to the public.
- Online resources: these include an Artist Database and an Exhibition Reviews Database.
