How do I become a member?
Sign up for WCCW membership here for as low as $5 a month. Don’t hesitate to email membership@wccw.us with any membership questions.

Are men allowed to be members?
Of course, we welcome all allies! Do note that while we encourage all genders to support us with membership, we are a space which centers trans & cis women, femme and non-binary folks. We therefore do not allow cis men to take up permanent space by working in our co-workcenter.

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 20% off paid programming, so if you’re coming to a lot of programming it might make sense to become a WCCW member.

Is the WCCW wheelchair accessible?
Yes, WCCW has a 36” wide ramp at our front entrance and a wheelchair accessible restroom. Read more about our accessibility at the bottom of our Visitor Info page.

Can I bring my baby or my dog when I’m working in the workspace?
Generally dogs & babies are allowed in the workspace unless they become a distraction to other members working, or if someone has allergies or feels uncomfortable for any reason. You’re welcome to email (info@wccw.us) or call ((323) 739-8847) us to makes sure it’s okay day-of before coming in. Dogs and babies are sometimes allowed at events and weekend programming, but it’s best to check with the specific program facilitator before bringing 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! First-timers 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’m strapped for cash but want to go to this paid event- is this possible?
Our program costs go directly towards compensation of the instructors and staffers who work the event. We want to make programming as accessible as possible to anyone who is interested, however, so we offer volunteer opportunities in exchange for membership, as well as free community tickets to each program (number varies depending on capacity of the class). Email info@wccw.us for more info or to find out more about these opportunities for a specific event!

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 and application. Please apply even if the deadline for the current quarter has passed –we’ll keep your application on file for the next quarter.

You can also rent the WCCW space for your personal use! Check out rental details & availability here.

Can I use the print lab to print my publication?
Warrior level members and above can get up to 40 free B&W copies per week on our laser printer. Laser print costs for WCCW Torchbearer members and the general community are 4-8c per page.

Our print lab  functions as the HQ for our press Co-Conspirator Press, and the risograph printer is not currently open to members to use, as it is our primary printer for Co–Co publications. The WCCW Print Lab is not currently open to the public for paid print services.

Can I drop off my compost here?
Yes you can! WCCW has compost bins that both serve as a community drop off point for the surrounding community as well as a space that processes organics onsite. Information on composting can be found here.
