The Women's Community Center community arts series Healing Through the Arts is a wrap until the fall. Thanks to the community organizations who collaborated with the WCC on the series: Ashé Arts Austin, the Hive Arts Collective, and Colectiva Cósmica. Special thanks to the instructors who made these classes happen: Sade Jones, Maribel Falcon, Emily Beanblossom, Murphy Anne Carter, and Bronwyn Walls.
We can't wait to see everyone at the SOLD OUT screening of Ovarian Psycos on Sunday, August 27! We are so happy to share space with the Texas Council on Family Violence (TCVF) along with the many supporters of Alt Girl Cinema. See you there!
We have been working out of the People Fund's Bloom Lab, a coworking space for women in business and nonprofits. They featured our current and upcoming events on their blog. Read it, and let us know if you would like to get involved with our events. Also, we now have an Amazon Smile! But you must use this link to support the Women's Community Center: smile.amazon.com/ch/46-1963856.
It was wonderful to see all of you at this year’s Women’s Empowerment Conference (WE Con). I was truly uplifted by your smiles, engagement and spirit. I encourage you to keep the conversations and connections going in the name of further empowerment.
I have been on board as the Interim Executive Director of the Women’s Community Center of Central Texas since April 3rd. I have been delighted to speak with so many of the organization’s supporters in that time, and look forward to meeting more of you soon. I’d like to hear your ideas for ways the Women’s Community Center could best support you.
One strong message we have gotten from you has been: the women’s community needs space. Through surveys and discussions, you’ve told us that space for meeting, working and outreach would support the goals and mission of those in the women’s community.
We have heard you. Creating a hub – an empowering center – for women is currently our main goal. Though the organization is presently working without a space, we have hope for the future. I invite you to be a part of this goal; and one way is to give your feedback in this short survey. I would also love to speak with you about your ideas. Please let me know your thoughts.
Thank you again for being a part of WE Con 2017!
Yours in community,
Interim Executive Director
