ABOUT SLWA

South London Women Artists (SLWA) is a group of 100 acclaimed professional women artists, living and working in South London.

We are a not for profit organisation. 

 

Our aim is to exhibit and promote the Artwork of Women in South London, who are often left unseen. 

 

Our exhibitions reach a large number of people, including art collectors, friends, families, schools, and places of work. Our group has 100 members, plus an alumni of artists and their friends. 

Each artist in the group has a minimum of 50 core supporters, meaning that we have at least 5,000 engaged supporters of the group.

As an example, Michelle Baharier, the chair of the SLWA artist group has an art mailing list just under 900 people, a following of 1773 on Instagram, 550 on Facebook and over 7400 connections on Linked in, including CEOs and journalist who know her from her work as the Founder of the award winning charity Cooltan Arts, which she ran between 2002 and 2018. 

Michelle also has access to the 40,000 strong readership of the organisation Disability Arts Online, where she has a curated blog. 

Our main SLWA account has 1.8k followers. Many of our artists have a similar online following, with an average between 500-2000 social media followers per person across all popular networks. We have admin access to art related Facebook groups with over 26000 members.

Direct Reach

With at least 12 women in each art show, if each of the participating member reaches on average 3000 people through social media, we can reach approximately 36,000 people directly.

Wider reach: 

  • We have a large number of potential customers. The work of the group is often taken up by newspapers such as the Southwark News, South London Press, Art Rabbit, popular local sites like Brixton Buzz and others.
  • We promote our events across all popular websites including Eventbrite
  • We print posters, which we distribute locally
  • We also print hard copy flyers and distribute them locally, reaching another 2000 potential customers.
    Our flyers are attractive and are often kept as a keepsake by our visitors.
