Women’s Center for Creative Work

Founded in 2013, the Women’s Center for Creative Work, or WCCW, is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to cultivate LA’s feminist creative communities and practices. In our most tangible incarnation we are a women-lead creative coworkspace. On a broader level, we are an enabling architecture providing professional, emotional and artistic nourishment for female driven creative projects. Since our founding in November 2013 we have built a network of over 1,500 women committed to supporting each other socially, creatively and economically and building the structures (physical and transcendental) that maximize connectivity and empower us collectively. The project is simultaneously the work of its main collaborators –designer Kate Johnston and producer Sarah Williams– as well as a platform for our growing community’s ideas, works and projects. Through our Nodes Program we incubate kindred projects by providing insight, consultation, and access to our network. Combining a co-workspace on the LA river in Frogtown, project incubation facilities, residency programs, a rapidly growing network of over 16,000 followers, and a full calendar of artistic and professional development programming, WCCW advocates for feminist-led creative businesses and projects in Los Angeles. Core Values The Women’s Center for Creative Work is a safe space where: •Self-determination, respect & care for oneself + others is maintained above all else •We care for & respect the organization, its capacity, its facility & its participants •There is a radically expansive and intersectional understanding of feminism, what is a woman & what is female experience •There is a radically expansive understanding of creative practice •Trans & cis women, femme and non-binary folks are in a place of preference, unqualified & unapologetically •We cultivate a spirit of generosity & joy •We honor our ever-expanding network as a valuable resource •We advocate for feminism as an active & evolving practice
