How do I become a member?
Sign up for WCCW membership here for as low as $10 bucks a month. Don’t hesitate to email emily@wccw.us with any membership questions.

Are men allowed to be members?
We welcome men as allies! While our workspace membership is available for female identifying, trans, and non-binary folks only, cis men are welcome to become non-workspace members, or to show their support with a donation.

Are men allowed at events?
Yes. Unless specifically stated, everyone is welcome at our events.

Do I have to be a member to attend events?
Nope! Members and non-members alike are welcome to come to all our events. WCCW members do get 10-20% off paid programming, so if you’re coming to a lot of stuff it might make sense to become a WCCW member.

Can I bring my baby or my dog when I’m working in the workcenter?
For the comfort and peace of other members we do not allow babies/children or pets (with the exception of service dogs) for extended stays in the workspace during workspace hours. Dogs and babies are generally allowed at events and weekend programming, but it’s best to check with the specific program facilitator before bringing a them to an event/program. We do offer specific programming just for parents and kids! Check the calendar for details.

What new events do you have coming up?
Check out our calendar here! To stay updated on all our upcoming events, we recommend following us on Facebook and Instagram, as well as signing up for our mailing list to get our monthly email bulletin (click on the menu icon in the top right corner of the page and put your email in the field under “Get Involved”)!

Can I work here for the day to try it out before deciding to become a member?
Of course! People are welcome to drop by and work on a daily basis. Feel free to drop a few bucks in the donations jar if you have some cash, but if not don’t worry about it.

I can’t afford a membership but I want to volunteer here for trade, how do I do that?
Check out our volunteer options here. 

I want to host my workshop/performance/art show/etc. at the WCCW, how do I do that?
We schedule our programming quarterly with an open call every three months based around a theme and in collaboration with our creative in residence. Check out our programming page for more info application. Please apply even if the deadline for the current quarter has passed –we’ll keep your application on file for the next quarter.

Can I use the print center to print my publication?
The print center equipment is free for use for all of our Workcenter Members who pay $40 or more each month. We offer regularly scheduled orientations to the risograph printer which are free for members and $60 for non-members. Contact our print lab manager at print.center@wccw.us for more info.

Non-Workspace Members can contract print work for an hourly fee. Contact our print lab manager at print.center@wccw.us if you are interested in print lab services at the WCCW.
