$30 monthly or $300 annually  

Programs Supporter

It takes a special combination of organic material, under the right conditions, to transform — okay, yes, decompose — into the essential nutrients that will nurture soil and allow plants to grow healthy & strong.  Like compost, our programming blends that special mix of materials that feeds our hearts, mind and bodies, so that we can all grow into more intersectional, thoughtful, critical, loving, and interdependent people.

As a Programs Supporter, your contributions do the double duty of giving artists and facilitators, with varying levels of experience, the paid opportunity to hone and develop their practice, while also sharing skills, knowledge, connections, and inspiration to our greater community. Our FCCW programming offers the tools to learn, think critically about the systems of oppression that surround us, and to know ourselves better.

Mandy Harris Williams is our current Programming Director and over the past year, without a physical space, she has managed to develop a host of rigorous, delightful, fully-online, digital programming. This new frontier for FCCW offers the added benefits of being more accessible to people around the world, as well as in L.A, and means you can often catch a recording of an event you may have missed live. At this level, you’re also supporting our ability to share FCCW programs to a much wider audience than ever before.

Everyone who signs up at this level gets free access to all our digital programming archive and free digital PDFs of all Co–Conspirator Press Publications.

Meet Sarula Bao

Sarula Bao is a Chinese American illustrator and graphic novelist based in Brooklyn. She recently published a graphic novel, Lissa: A Story about Medical Promise, Friendship, and Revolution and currently works as a graphic novel project manager/visual consultant and freelance illustrator. Her work explores Chinese culture and queerness through a 2nd generation American experience.


I was really inspired by the idea of the base as compost that provides all of the necessary ingredients for a flourishing community. It's something that community members put the work in themselves to grow into something beautiful.”
