"Empowering Artists of All Ages through Education, Mentorship & Scholarships"

Our Vision & Mission Statement

The Women in Music and Arts Foundation Is A Non-Profit Organization Comprising Of Dynamic, Influential Women In The Performing, Visual And Literary Arts Raising Awareness In The Global Community Preserving The Legacy Of The Feminine Influence Providing Educational Seminars, Workshops, Conferences Community Outreach Programs & Scholarships

The Women in Music and Arts Corporation (WIMA) was created January 2012 and gained membership throughout the year. We had over 30 events including monthly mixers, songwriting showcase, jazz and Broadway tributes, artisan showcase, gallery event downtown, mentoring and community outreach programs.

We learned a lot last year about the inner workings of starting a non-profit organization and we are grateful to our members for being patient with us during our infant stages.  We look forward to developing more workshops, seminars, conferences and scholarship opportunities for our members as we move forward into 2013 with the help of donations, our members, partners and sponsors.

Here is what our members say when asked, "What does WIMA mean to you?"
