Women's Center for Creative Work Co-founders and Directors, Kate Johnston and Sarah Williams discuss the founding philosophy, structure, and day-to-day running of their Los Angeles-based feminist organization.

Founded in early 2013, the Women’s Center for Creative Work, or WCCW, is a nonprofit organization whose mission it to cultivate Los Angeles’ feminist creative communities and practices. Combining a co-workspace, project incubation facilities, residency programs, a rapidly growing network of over 300 members, and a full calendar of artistic and professional development programming for female-identified creatives, WCCW advocates for women’s artistic careers and female-led creative projects and businesses in Los Angeles.

The WCCW is a safe space where self-determination, respect and care for oneself and others is maintained above all else; where there is a radically expansive understanding of feminism, what is a woman, and what is female experience, as well as of creative practice. It is a place where the female-identified are in a place of preference, unqualified and unapologetically and where we advocate for feminism as an active and evolving practice.

OPEN SCHOOL is a sporadic lecture, workshop & seminar series organised by Graphic design & Illustration at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm.
