20 Years of Creative Women

Our new logo is our vow:

The AROHO story is not about any one woman; it’s a story about all of us—our origins, our works of art, and the room we make for each other.

The Q: What is Your Creative Origin Story? Click to Share.

20 years bring us full circle and fill us with gratitude: for you, for our collective legacy as creative women, for our acceleration forward. AROHO’s twenty-year story is yours for the telling.

Born from two decades of collective wisdom, and ambitious, radical programs intended to transform the paradigm of the creative woman, we’ve worked, learned, and felt our way here.

What has your artistic journey been like these past 20 years? How far have you come? Have women from AROHO’s community been part of your origin story, inspired work, or artistic journey? Share your origin story with us. We are here to celebrate all the ways creative women make a difference for each other.


Our 20 Year celebration starts now:

This is our crowning year. Honoring our legacy, we ask ourselves what we will do and how we will do it.

Here’s how you can help.
