Welcome to SWEA Austin

SWEA Austin was established in 2005 and is part of SWEA International, the Swedish Women’s Educational Association, Inc., as a global network for Swedish-speaking women who live, or have lived, outside of Sweden. For more information in English, please visit our brief overview of SWEA and the English description on the SWEA International website.

Austin is located Deep in the Heart of Texas and has deep connections to Sweden. The Swedish portions of SWEA Austin’s site includes information about the chapter’s activities as well as historical information about Swedes in the Austin area.

For additional information, please contact the chapter president for SWEA austin [austin(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)swea.org].

We invite you to visit our outreach pages, where we share ideas for how to present Swedish traditions at schools and in other settings. (These pages are currently under development and will appear soon!)
