Spoken Soul Festival’s Three Day Event Honors and Promotes South Florida Female Artists During International Women’s History Month

Three days of community service, sexy designs, hypnotizing hips, powerful poetry, and delicious mimosas is just a glimpse for what is to be expected at the 4th Annual Spoken Soul Festival – SWAN Day 2011. “I am so impressed with the women organizers of SWAN Day Miami. Their Spoken Soul Festival is one of the top five SWAN Day celebrations in the world, and it gets better every year,” states founder of the international holiday celebrating women artists, SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now), Martha Richards.

The mission of this three-day event is to produce an annual festival that will help advance the careers of a variety of women artists. Spoken Soul Festival’s three feature events are: SWAN Community Program, SWAN Spoken Soul Showcase – SWAN DAY, and the Vanessa Baez Memorial Women’s Brunch.

Since its launch in March 2008, the festival has been awarded proclamations from the City of Miami Beach, Miami Dade County and the City of Miami. Featured artists have been commissioned or featured at Art Basel Miami, Gibson Guitar Showroom, New York Fashion Week, and Gen Art’s Fresh Faces Miami.

To kick off the 4th year in style, festival sponsor Dacra Development will host SSF’s press party on Saturday March 12, 2011 during their 2nd Saturday Gallery Walk at The Stage.“Spoken Soul Festival’s focus on women artists and community outreach is a natural fit to take place in the Miami Design District,” states Tiffany Chestler, manager and curator for The Craig Robins Collection.

Featured artists from past years and this year will participate in SWAN Community Program on Friday March 25, 2011 at 12pm. The program benefits Artoconecto’s KIDSART program, in partnership with Art Studio. Artists will be mentoring at-risk youth by discussing positive image, role models, and women of the future by using drawing, painting and poetry.

For the 3rd year in a row radio personality Chanel from 93.9 MIA FM will host the 4th annual SWAN Day – SWAN Spoken Soul Showcase Vol 4. Chanel shares, “I had the honor of meeting some amazingly talented women and can’t wait to see who will be a part of this year’s show.” This FREE event will be held in the heart of the Miami Design District at The Stage located at 170 NE 39th Street on Saturday March 26, 2011 at 6pm. The venue will be buzzing with women DJs, belly dancing, poets, fine artists, designers and much more. The event will be an opportunity for powerful, inspiring women to network and show support for each other’s work.

The 7th Annual Vanessa Baez Memorial Women’s Brunch is the closing event of the annual Spoken Soul Festival on Sunday March 27, 2011 at 11:30am. The founder of ArtSpring, the inspiring Leslie Neal will be the guest speaker. Seating is limited and for women only. The all-inclusive delicious brunch costs $40 per person hosted at UVAS Restaurant 6900 Biscayne Blvd. Visit to buy your ticket now. Guests will receive a complimentary gift bag full of surprises from the brunch sponsors. “It is obvious that our community wants an event like this, where indeed women artists are appreciated. I intend to produce this festival for the rest of my life,” says Deborah Magdalena, founder of Spoken Soul Festival and sister of Latin Grammy Winner Nestor Torres.
