The International Caucus maintains the Women's Caucus for Art's involvement as an NGO (non-governmental organization) with the United Nations, develops art platforms to support UN Goals, develops collaborative projects with other global organizations, collects data about WCA art & activism projects and shares this information with the larger WCA membership. Prior to the establishment of the caucus in 2011, an International Committee focused on WCA’s UN NGO work.
