Turning Point Shelter, Santa Monica, CA

In May 2017, Women’s Voices Now launched its first Los Angeles community workshop. “Films and Poetry” will serve the men and women who frequent the Ocean Park Community Center (OPCC) in Santa Monica, California. Led by WVN Curriculum Developer Ariel Fintushel, the workshop will take place over the course of eight Fridays.

From June to July of 2017, residents of Santa Monica’s Turning Point Shelter took part in Films & Poetry, a workshop facilitated by Women’s Voices Now. Throughout these classes, residents watched films from WVN’s archives, read poetry, then wrote original works.
