Programming

All programming at the WCCW supports our mission of cultivating L.A.’s feminist creative communities and practices. We accept applications for programming which are reviewed by our programming committee on an ongoing basis. During the summer we take a break from regularly scheduled programming to pursue special projects.

Programming Theme for Summer 2017: Summer Skill Share

We are now accepting proposals for Fall 2017 (September – November).

Application Guidelines

The WCCW Programming Committee is dedicated to the goal of radical inclusivity, and privileges proposals that clearly connect to the mission and core values of the organization. We are excited by programming that addresses these ideas and the quarterly theme in experiential, personal, tangible, as well as institutional and abstract ways. 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.

Due to the constraints of the space and the neighborhood, there are some restrictions on programs and events:

  • No loud music  
  • No parties where more than 70 people are expected
  • Nothing that goes past 10pm on a weeknight or 11pm on Friday or Saturday

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.

Although the WCCW is strongly committed to supporting the creators of the programming it hosts, events are largely volunteer run. Please be sure your proposed event adheres to our core value of honoring the capacities of the organization, its facilities, and its participants. In addition, we ask that those applying be prepared to manage the execution of their proposed programming.

Application Timelines

Previously, the WCCW explored a specific theme with a creative-in-residence and related programming for Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters. Past programming themes have included Coalition, Co-Struggle, Civics, & Magic.

Announcements for quarterly programming have traditionally been made by February 1, August 1 and November 1, for the following quarter. However, this schedule is subject to change as we adjust our overall programming model during Fall 2017. Please check this page for updated information.
