Logo competition - International Center for Women Artists

Create the official logo for the International Center for Women Artists – ICWA, a new UNESCO Category II museum and arts education center in Amman, Jordan, celebrating the genius of international women artists.

At UNESCO’s 36th General Conference (November 2011), history was made. For the first time ever, the 194 Member States of UNESCO came together to approve the creation of a new project, the International Center for Women Artists – ICWA. The decision makes it the first museum and arts education project that has formally been approved by all of the Member States of the United Nations from its conception. 

The Center will be located in Amman, Jordan, but will be the home for the work of contemporary women artists from around the world. ICWA will have both a permanent collection of art, as well as temporary exhibits. It will also have a travelling exhibit that will bring ICWA’s work to those who cannot travel to Amman.

The Center will also have artists in residence, and will have space for live performances, film and lectures. Working with major technology partners, ICWA will also be present online, bringing its collections and art to people around the world via internet. 

The main idea of the Center is to create a place at the crossroads of civilizations – in Jordan – where free expression, education, culture and art are welcome and encouraged. The idea of peace through art has been at the heart of the ICWA project from the start.
