Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...). Come and take what you can use and say thanks! We will have folks to check in with as you arrive.

Sunday: in the morning & evening: a.m.- Tea Party/ p.m.- The Spaces Between: ongoing project about what anarchyland is like outside of major cities/ 1st Fri at the MAH/& More!

-Sunday, June 5th, happenings in the morning and evening!


9am-2pmTea Party with Zoie & Randy

    Come try out home made scones, cookies, or other sweet things (for donation), drink tea and coffee and hang out with some rad folks.


7pm: The Spaces Between: ongoing project about what anarchyland is like outside of major cities

    Join folks from Denver, CO and Richmond, VA for an evening of discussion about The Spaces Between, an ongoing project about what anarchyland looks like outside of major urban strongholds.

The first installment of this series of publications is complete and will be available at the event. The zine features interviews with people who are currently living in or once have lived in those places where nothing feels flammable and everything feels impossible. These kids aren't living in anarchist Disney land. Instead, they're living in the places where anarchists are struggling along in what can best be described as the project of anarchy. It isn't glamorous. It isn't meme ready. It can feel isolated. It is tireless and unrelenting nevertheless.

As this project continues there will be further interviews with anarchists in both the U.S. and Canada as well as essays. You can keep updated with release dates and future tour dates at spacesbetweentour.wordpress.com

These kids are still accepting both interview participants and essay submissions through September 2016. You can hit them up at thespacesbetween@riseup.net for more information.

Happening Elsewhere in Santa Cruz!


This Friday June 3rd, create art with working artists at the Museum of Art and History (MAH) in the brand new exhibition, Art Works. Info at https://santacruzmah.org/event/free-first-friday-37/ and at https://www.facebook.com/events/260199314368229/
 

 "Exhibitions Catalyst" (uh, person who did a lot of work setting up the exhibiting artists for the summer) Wes Modes was once very involved with SubRosa and was one of the founding members of the project and collective. The wonderful band Matador will also be playing, also friends of SubRosa. So, although there is no art opening at SubRosa this Friday, you can go to the MAH for a fine time (with folks that have history with SubRosa).


Build collaborative sculpture with Heidi Cramer about the San Lorenzo River. Share your scar stories and create prints with Nanci Amaka. Create your own mythologies with masks and divination with Huameng Yu. Meet the Art Works artists with a dynamic talk. Dance to live music from Matador + Friends. Enjoy an all-ages art activity in the classroom. 

NEW EXHIBITIONS | Explore our new exhibition Art Works in the 2nd floor Solari Gallery. Create art with working artists. These are just three of the eleven artists who will transform the MAH's Solari Gallery into a series of open, functioning artist's studios this summer. You'll meet the artists themselves and become part of their process. 

ARTIST TALKS | 5:30-6:30pm | Auditorium –  Catch Artist Talks by Art Works artists Heidi Cramer, Nanci Amaka, and Huameng Yu. Learn more about their art practice and the process of forming this exhibition by Exhibitions Catalyst Wes Modes.

LIVE MUSIC | 6:30-9pm | Atrium: Dance to live music by Matador + Friends. Mathew and Dorota of Matador are coming together after too many years apart to play a variety of songs—old and new, original and traditional, broody and lighthearted. The guitar and violin duo will be joined by various friends throughout the night.

ART ACTIVITY | 5:00-9pm | Classroom: Make giant tape resist drawings with friends and strangers. Explore process art and see how the work evolves throughout the night

7:30pm: Abuse and Patriarchy: A Three-Part Workshop about Unity and Struggle (on Wednesdays May 25, June 1, June 8 at 7:30pm)


    Brought to you by the public school project.  more info at https://publicschoolsantacruz.wordpress.com/2016/05/02/abuse-and-patriarchy-a-three-part-workshop-about-unity-and-struggle/ and other offerings also available at the website

Info from the above link:  Learning to Fight, Learning to Heal. Like everybody else, Unity and Struggle members have grappled with how to address abuse and patriarchal behavior in our society, and in left organizations including our own. We don't have easy answers, but we've found it helpful to study the nature of abuse under capitalism and different responses to it. Here is the syllabus for an abuse study that some U&S members and friends are currently test-driving in several cities, based on interest. We hope other groups will take up the reading list, adapt it to their needs, and use it to craft responses to abuse in our movement and lives.

 Study guide and curriculum available athttp://unityandstruggle.org/2016/04/23/learning-to-fight-learning-to-heal/ free and open to the public.
