Proposals for Digital Programming for Women's Center for Creative Work
For the foreseeable future, we will freshen up our way of doing things, seeing things, connecting, sharing wisdom, sharing space—or not. Although the world seems to have slowed down, we still have lots to do and we must do it differently. This year, we’ll focus on content, but also, work in new structures and mediums, specifically, we’ve added an ongoing film series, and we’ll mirror Co-Conspirator Press in building our IGTV library. New forms create opportunities for new sorts of programming and programmers to flourish, while some programs should be reworked for digital formats. We’re looking for “Proposal” Proposals: we’ll manage mortal and material realities posed by COVID-19, it’s antecedents and aftermaths, work through best strategies in navigating an election season, and beyond. How do you propose we organize and connect differently? Take care of one another? Adjust our creative practices? Consider personhood, selves, and “Others?” Artists imagine worlds beyond the one we’re living in now. What are you imagining, and how can you teach others to share that vision with you? We’ll be looking for your most visionary proposals, to add to our online programming schedule (where we’ll meet until we resume in person programming, and will sustain in a different capacity after we’re able to meet in person). We’re excited to engage internet communities and have the opportunity to host more spatially diverse and accessible conversations: time to dream big…or consider the need to dream small. These programs will be offered through December 2020. We will review proposals on a rolling basis until September 10th.
Submit a proposal for programming! All programming at the WCCW supports our mission of cultivating L.A.’s feminist creative communities and practices. We are invested in the idea that through individual programs, and the experiences shared by each participant, the larger work of building communities and reframing creative conversations unfolds. In alignment with our Core Values, we prioritize proposals that center people who have historically been marginalized in feminist and art spaces. This includes programs led by and/or centering people of color (especially Black or Indigenous people), trans and non binary people, and disabled people. Additionally, we prioritize programming that directly addresses the programming theme and that adheres to our mission and Core Values: https://wccwcorevalues.persona.co/
