The Northern California Women's Caucus for Art (NCWCA) Day at Djerassi Resident Artists Program will bring together a vibrant community of women artists to explore, make art, reflect and interact in a setting of great natural beauty.

In addtion to our artist panel and workshops, we will have breakfast and lunch served from Djerassi's amazing organic kitchen and the unique opportunity to tour the land art created by years of Djerassi Residency Artists. Djerassi, in the hills above the Northern California peninsula, is closed to the public most of the year.

Djerassi Day 2017's theme is "Actionable Art and Artists" – focusing on art practices that take action, create change, communicate, heal, activate, educate, transform and make the planet a better place. In these uncertain times, many of us are asking what we can do as artists, individuals, and collaboratively. Djerassi Day 2017 will provide an opportunity for WCA artists to connect, share, learn new skills, and plan with these thoughts in mind.
