Activating women’s art is core to WAAS’s aims.

Women get activated


The framework for The Women’s Art Activation System Activation Group is a series of 6 group sessions over 7 months. This small cohort of 10 peers, facilitated by the two WAAS artists Sharon and Sarah, is a chance to learn together, support each other, receive coaching and mentoring and to get active in your art practice, taking it to the next level, whatever that is for you.

It’s open to women, and anyone marginalised by their gender identity. If you aren’t sure please contact us.

Using a mix of coaching, mentoring and peer support, we will guide you through a process of activating your art practice. Whether you are an established practitioner facing a change or a stuck point, or are starting out on a new creative adventure, this group programme will ensure you are moving forward strongly and vibrantly.

Sessions will include:

  • Check-ins

  • Prompts, reference and guidance 
  • Worksheets
  • Action steps
  • A Whatsapp group for participants will allow for staying in touch as we go through the program together

If you would like something more tailored, you can ask about creating your WAAS activation  below, to get your art idea/project/practice off the ground or up into the clouds.

WAAS will design a session with you and both artists will contribute to your support. This might include portfolio review, crit, and discussion; coaching style questions to help you work through a conundrum; networking, contacts and advice; or a space to review and plan your next steps.

Activations are held at the WAAS Headquarters in Stroud, or online.
