This is the reason why the symbol of the Association WindMill ART POWER PLANT is a mill that
catches the wind and transforms it in energy. To convert the wind of creativity in positive energy, to
collect the requests of artists, to create real opportunities for them and to bring out the
undisputed fact that every woman has the art of life in her hands. This is the aim of
W.A.D.&community project, this is the result of such a strong motivation.
The project foresees the constitution of a data bank and of an in progress archive of women artists
of every nationality, born during the XX century, currently active in the world of arts or who have
recently passed away.
The aim of W.A.D.&community is to:
 Enhance and promote the great input that women give to the world of Arts with their
professionalism and indefatigable search.
 Perpetuate and defend from oblivion the oeuvres made by women in order to give them
the chance to be understood in a cultural world still anchored on patriarchal grounds.
 Highlight the value of women artists through specific studies.
 Preserve the memory of entire lives who were dedicated to Arts.
 Promote studies and researches together with Art Academies and Universities.
 Support the realization of real opportunities for women artists.
The project aims to activate a community intended as a network of acquaintances between
women artists helped by social media. The target is to assemble the Database as a living organism,
rich of creative energy, which promotes exchanges of ideas and co-operations among artists,
anchored in our days and projected to the future.
