Enterprising Women Making Art (EWMA) is a program of Atira Women’s Resource Society. Blending art, Community and social entrepreneurship, EWMA works with emerging women artists and artisans in the downtown eastside to provide a safe space for all women to create marketable artwork.

ATIRA Women's Resource Society (http://www.atira.bc.ca) is a community-based organization that operates programs for women and their children affected by violence and/or abuse.
Enterprising Women Making Art (EWMA) is a program of Atira. The program encourages women to sell their art and handmade products as an act of personal, community and economic empowerment.

EWMA participants wish to work towards a self sustainable vision of glamour, that redefines current trends from blind consumerism to self sufficiency. EWMA glamour is individually driven. Sew your own clothes, grow your own food, exercise your own way, sing your own song, tell your own story, and share it all with your neighbours.

EWMA's Goals
Improve socio-economic conditions; promote recognition of the strengths and capacities of the DTES low-income community; increase individual self-sufficiency; create sustainable income opportunities for marginalized women; empower the artisans; promote local production and help to create a fair connection between producer and consumer.
