  • F.L.O.W. Feminist Reading Group

    September 22, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

    The Feminist Library on Wheels is hosting a feminist reading group at the Women’s Center for Creative Work. We want to read and discuss feminist thought through the widest possible lens, and will be reading a mix of feminist critical theory, history, fiction, poetry—anything that touches on feminist experience and helps us engage with our own feminist practice.

    Join us this month as we read Mariarosa Dalla Costa's essay “Women and the Subversion of the Community” in conversation with prequel short story to The Dispossessed called "The Day Before the Revolution" by Ursula K. LeGuin (we’ll share the Dalla Costa selection with anyone who’d like to participate. The short story can be downloaded from LAPL). 

    We'll be meeting monthly, with potluck food to share.

    Please let us know if you’d like to join by RSVP-ing here.

  • Lambda Lit Fest 2019: How Do You Dyke?

    September 23, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Presented by Kamala Puligandla 
    Free
    Max 50 attendants

    In a time when queer culture is super-commodified, let’s celebrate all the real ways that dykes live, in our greatest glory and our other feelings too. Through writing and performance, writers & artists B.A. Williams, Jasmine Nyende, Phoebe Unter, Caitlin Abadir-Mullally, & Kamala Puligandla will define what our own cultures look like, feel like, the textures and colors—because while they may contain flannel, processing and multiple orgasms, there’s incredible variety in the depth and richness of our communities and how we dyke.

  • Lambda Lit Fest 2019: Queer Diasporic Kinship: Building and Bridging Hope

    September 25, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Presented by Angela Peñaredondo
    Free
    Max 50 attendants

    As queer migrants or queer children of migrants, we share a deeper, more complex connective language that outstretches, tugs at the heart between body and land. Our language can be felt as division and severance as well as assimilation or reclamation. We understand connections to land and body have shared languages and are intrinsically connected. How can we continue to form kinship through both queer and diasporic identities?  This literary reading, with Edxie Betts, Kay Ulanday Barrett, Tala Oliver Mateo, Angela Peñaredondo & Addie Tsai will continue the work of centering multiple communities in struggle and in solidarity with one another.

  • Lambda Lit Fest 2019: Writing To Yourself: Intuition & Conversation in Poetics

    September 27, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Presented by Kenning Jean-Paul Garcia
    Free
    Max 50 attendants

    How does intuitive writing become an avenue for chronicling / conversing with memory? How do we console ourselves and continue to move, even if we can never truly move on? When we ask these questions, how can we answer to ourselves? Panelists will engage with the challenges of intuitive writing—a process in which writers follow gut instincts that may disrupt ones conception of time, narrative, and memory—and the contradictions that emerge during such inquiries.

  • Sewing Rebellion: Motifs, Migrations and Misappropriations

    October 5, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
    Women's Center for Creative Work, 2425 Glover Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90031, USA

    Presented by: Frau Fiber

    $10 Regular / $8 Members


    fast fashion - n, inexpensive clothing produced rapidly by mass-market retailers in response to the latest trends

    knock off - n, a copy or imitation, especially of an expensive or designer product

    Stop shopping, start sewing!

    In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to cut and sew a coat using t-shirts, a “natural resource” and a symbol of the consumer culture of late western capitalism. The Sewing Rebellion will present a glimpse of Syrian garment history, the fast fashion supply chain, and instructions for making a knock-off of a Syrian child’s coat, a garment held in the collection of the Textile Museum in Washington DC. 

    This production supports the Institute 4 Labor Generosity Workers & Uniforms (ILGWU) campaign to make fast fashion’s appropriation of silhouettes and motifs more transparent, through the MOTIFS, MIGRATIONS AND MISAPPROPRIATIONS campaign. This campaign reveals the exploitation and appropriation of cultural motifs by fast fashion: While cheap disposable garments travel the world, inhabitants of the countries where the motifs originate (like Syria) are banned and unwelcome to cross borders as they flee violence. 

    This garment is one in a series of collaborations between museums and the Sewing Rebellion. The Sewing Rebellion is invited to choose a garment from a museum collection to put into production scheme.  Garments are chosen based on the complexity of the garment production, and the garment’s ability to represent and draw attention to contemporary injustice.

    Participants should provide (if you have):
    Sewing Machine
    Fabric Scissors
    2 t-shirts
    Ruler

    We deserve safety and we have every right to claim a space safe. In the entertainment industry, self-care and well-being are not always valued, but we believe in changing that. We believe that every one of us has the strength we need to protect ourselves, but sometimes the tools are missing to do so. We’re here at WCCW to bring you a safe space, tools and resources to practice setting your boundaries and trusting your intuition because you deserve to draw your line and let others know where the f*ck you stand.
