FEAAN started in November 2001 during an all Female Art Exhibition in Abuja.
The Association was born out of the need of the female artist who in the past found it difficult to come out during exhibitions with their male counterparts. Most of them after marriage or graduation abandoned the profession for other things.
We came together as a body to channel our challenges in the society through art exhibitions, seminars, workshops and training for the younger ones. We have also used our art to advocate against inequality, rape, genital mutilation, violence, child abuse, sex slaves at conflict areas, adoption and so on.
is to identify talented Nigerian Female Artists, using them and their skills to bring about positive social change in society.
is to foster a sense of pride and achievements among female creative professionals to promote the dignity of women and to encourage members to continue practising art.
For the past five years, the Female Artists Association of Nigeria (FEAAN) have consistently celebrated this occasion by holding art exhibitions based on the International Women's Day theme.
FEAAN registration number CAC/IT/NO 26022.
