Enterprising Women Making Art
EWMA launched in 2003, where the focus was to support women in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside to work together to develop an alternative form of business or employment that is grounded in their needs and realities. These self employment programs were for all women in the Downtown Eastside that have been impacted by violence (including aboriginal, immigrant, visible minorities, senior women and women with physical or mental disabilities), who faced signficant barriers due to traditional employment who seek safety, who are in search of income generating oppournties free from exploitations, abuse or other vulnerabilities. This program is designed to cater to women from all intersectionalities.

These women are active in design, planning, marketing and production of their products (which include: "Semi Precious Jewelry, Hand knit garments, cards, ceramics, fine arts photography and textiles")

Due to COVID the store is closed until further notice.
The studio is closed on the weekends, but open Monday-Friday from 10:00am to 5:00pm

Address: 800 E Hastings St, Vancouver, BC V6A 1R6
