We prioritize programming that directly addresses both the quarterly theme, and adheres to our mission and core values. We are invested in the idea that through individual programs, and the experiences of each person in them, the larger work of building communities and reframing creative conversations unfolds.
Core ValuesThe Women’s Center for Creative Work is a safe space where:Self-determination, respect, and care for oneself and others is maintained above all elseWe care for and respect the organization, its capacity, its facilities, and its participantsThere is a radically expansive understanding of feminism, what is a woman, and what is female experienceThere is a radically expansive understanding of creative practiceCis women, trans women, femme and non-binary folks are in a place of preference, unqualified & unapologeticallyWe cultivate a spirit of generosity and joyWe honor our ever-expanding network as a valuable resourceWe advocate for feminism as an active and evolving practice
Programming RestrictionsDue to the constraints of the space and the neighborhood, there are some restrictions on programs and events:•No loud music•No parties with more than 100 people are expected•Nothing that goes past 10pm on a weeknight or 11pm on Friday or Saturday •Nothing cost-prohibitive to our community
Applicants may be asked to modify their proposals: if, for example, a workshop might be a better fit at a later time, or if a program might benefit from conversation with other proposed events. The WCCW is strongly committed to supporting the creators of the programming it hosts. However, WCCW is almost entirely volunteer run, and we ask that those submitting proposals adhere to our core value of honoring the capacities of the organization, its facilities, and its participants. We ask that those applying be prepared to manage the execution of their proposed programming.
