Follow up

After submitting a rental request Em (emily@wccw.us) will follow up with an email or phone call to go over the details of your event. If you have not been to our space before or if the rental is for a more elaborate project or event, the renter should come in for a meeting and a tour to make sure the space fits the needs of the event or project.

Payment

We will invoice you via Paypal or Square once details have been confirmed. Payment needs to be made or in-process in order to reserve the space and is fully refundable with cancellation until two weeks prior to scheduled date.

Renter’s Responsibilities

Please review our Pertinent Information Booklet to get a sense of the space, including what needs to happen before, during, and after use.

If you are at the space to visit, install, or set-up during workspace hours (Monday–Friday 10am–6pm), please also review our WCCW Workspace Guidelines listed at the bottom of our Workspace Info Page and abide by them when in the space during these times.

WCCW’s primary function during the week is as an office and workspace, installation or set-up for events must not interfere with this function. If front workspace is needed for install, set-up, and clean-up during workspace hours, rental fees will apply. 

It may be possible for WCCW to provide some set-up or material help for rental events. Please outline these and confirm possibility when making the reservation.

WCCW is a small not for profit organization. We do not have a clean-up crew. All clean-up needs to happen collaboratively between the renter and WCCW staff immediately after the event. We cannot host anything that requires specialty (beyond household) cleaning supplies.

Rental Availability

The WCCW is only available for rentals on weekends and weeknights after 6:30pm, as we function as a co-working space Monday through Friday, 10am-6pm. Please check our availability below and select a few dates that you are requesting.
