At the beginning of 1916 I began volunteering at the Center and LOVED it! Creating found object art workshops that refreshed the walls in the Art Gallery while showing participants that anyone could CREATE! Participants were given the option of keeping their work or making it available to sell. Due to circumstances I took a 'furlough' & am looking forward to return SOON!

For me art is FUN & therapeutic. I consider it a joy to share the creative experience with others.
I've visited The Women's Intercultural Center for numerous years, initially donating books and other items so I've had the opportunity to watch it evolve. As a found object artist who is tired of 'lugging' my work around to small markets, I decided at the end of 2015 that I would contact nonprofits from Las Cruces, NM down to El Paso, TX offering my art to be used in fundraisers. Nice idea until I realized the time, etc. in doing that! One day, out of the blue, I receive a phone call from Mary Carter. She told me how she remembered the art curating I had done some years back at a local utility company and 'might' I be interested in doing the same for The Center? WOULD I? YOU BET I would! Also that she recognized the need to expand the art programs which would also benefit the community.
I am SO looking forward to working with this dynamic person, curating, conducting art workshops and bringing more affordable art to the area. Art is a venue that lifts people up, that teaches life skills along with problem solving. It's an equalizer in the sense that anyone can create! on and on and on!
2016 WILL BE a great year for The Women's Intercultural Center!
(2/4) I had to study for the 100 possible questions that are on the exam. The instructor was phenomenal and had all the patience in the world. She broke down th
The WIC is a fantastic resource for people and business between El Paso and Las Cruces. The building provides amenities you need and want and the staff is supremely helpful. When you want to reach the communities of far west El Paso and far south Dona Ana the WIC is your fist choice.
The Women's Intercultural Center is a crucial part of the social fabric of Deming. They provide valuable service and support for their community.
Wonderful place. I always loved going to the center. Really helpful for me . Thank you !!
Love, love, love! I started volunteering here back in October of 2015. I love it because the center offers so many great things to the community. From english classes to zumba, whatever you want to do to better your life this place is the one to go. Not to mention the staff I worked with were simply awesome! Beginning with Mary, she always brought out the best in me, always giving great advice when I needed.
Working at the Women's Intercultural Center was one of my best jobs! Not only did I get to work side by side with a great Mentor but was able to share my own knowledge to educate and empower women out of their norm. Working their also brought me back to my culture, tradations and life expeiences I felt cheated from growing up that were never emphasized in my household. As the Fund Development Coordinator I was able to promote a worthy cause and get funding for women to enhance their skills. The most rewarding part of working there was the BAE groups meeting and venturing out with college students from all over the United States. Working with Mexican women who wanted to better their lives for themselves and to leave a mark on their legacy. The Women's Intercultural Center made me a better mom, stronger person and in touch with my hertiage I thank Mary Carter for being a great friend and Mentor!!
This non-profit serves the community of Anthony providing assistance to people. They graciously let us use a room to have a meeting even though we're not members as they knew it would help a member of the community. I wish there were more agencies like the Women's Intercultural Center. Thank you for your generosity.
