Sarah Williams

Sarah recently found a flowchart mapping the curriculum for the Feminist Studio Workshop, the female-artist-run school, at the Woman’s Building which included “Feminist Administration,” an idea that really resonated with her –the feminist running of things being important to the overall health of the organization. She runs the logistics of WCCW, managing everything from the small details to the big-picture production. Handling budget, fundraising, grant writing, making sure the systems of WCCW run smoothly and working towards an online female driven economic network to be run out of the WCCW. Sarah is an enthusiastic host who thinks making food for 100 women sounds like fun. She is the resident cook for the Women’s Dinner and other WCCW activities. Both her feet are firmly on the earth at all times.

Williams is Managing Director Women’s Center for Creative Work (WCCW), a collaboration of Los Angeles ­based women engaged in conversations about creative practices and contemporary feminisms of all kinds. Over the past two years the the WCCW has hosted site­specific dinners, taken part in residencies, done a number of exhibitions, programs, and events, and enabled other women to realize their creative projects. Through these activities, and fuelled by the community of over 1500 women that have galvanized around and become part of this organization, we have realized the need and desire for a permanent, physical location to continue to grow this network of women interested in supporting each other socially, creatively and economically and building the structures (physical and transcendental) that maximize connectectivity and empower us collectively.
