I had the honor of photographing this year’s Women’s Center for Creative Work cocktail party benefit, hosted by Jill Soloway, a few weekends back this December. Yay ∞ WCCW, thank you for the work you do.
Founded in 2013, the Women’s Center for Creative Work, or WCCW, is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to cultivate LA’s feminist creative communities and practices.
Combining a co-workspace on the LA river in Frogtown, project incubation facilities, residency programs, a rapidly growing network of over 16,000 followers, and a full calendar of artistic and professional development programming, WCCW advocates for feminist-led creative businesses and projects in Los Angeles.
The Women’s Center for Creative Work is a safe space where:
•Self-determination, respect & care for oneself + others is maintained above all else
•We care for & respect the organization, its capacity, its facility & its participants
•There is a radically expansive and intersectional understanding of feminism, what is a woman & what is female experience
•There is a radically expansive understanding of creative practice
•Trans & cis women, femme and non-binary folks are in a place of preference, unqualified & unapologetically
•We cultivate a spirit of generosity & joy
•We honor our ever-expanding network as a valuable resource
•We advocate for feminism as an active & evolving practice
