Join WCCW at Verdugo Bar this month for a not *not* networking anti-Valentine’s matchmaking soiree! Make new friends, meet your mentor, find a new collaborator, AND/OR make a love connection — all in the same afternoon!
Purchase a ticket to attend the event. For a chance to take part in one of 4 fun rounds of artist-4-artist matchmaking, sign up at Verdugo the day of the event (first come, first served):
Collaborative Connections Speed Dating — In need of a meet-cute for your next creative collaborator? Join this round alone or in a pair to meet other women/enby creatives ready to swap skills, collab on projects, & make things together.
Mentor/Mentee Matchmaking — Our MENTORS have experience & expertise, YOU have ideas, ambitions, and lots of questions. Space is limited, so arrive early to sign up for your chance to speed date our roster of working artists, writers, art workers, filmmakers, and more! (Even if you don’t participate in speed dating, you’ll still have opportunities to connect with the Mentors at the event.) Apply to be a mentor here.
Platonic Partners — Find new friends for platonic bonding, explorations of intimacy, & interdependent community making in this round for platonic partnering.
Flings, Flames, Heartthrobs, & Sweethearts — Cuffing season’s not over yet! Meet your next one night stand, future ex girlfriend, or longtime lover in this flirty round for flings and flames.
• Each round is open to trans and cis women, trans men, and nonbinary folx.
• Participation in the speed dating rounds is not mandatory! In between & during speed dating rounds, there will be time to low-key no pressure network and meet new people from your field and the WCCW community.
