Sunday Really Really Free Market // Saturday April 24th - Queer Plant Swap! // & more (like Fábrica has courtyard hours again!)



Really Really Free Market - Sunday, April 11th- 11am - 2pm

Sunday! April 11th- 11 - 2pm - Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. With pandemic protocols- let's share community care! Wear a mask. Give each other space.

We all have something to share with each other... and to receive with gratitude is also a gift. This gathering is not about the "stuff" we give and take, but more about how we can freely give and receive from each other.

This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! But come to the Really Really Free Market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box). Come and take what you can use and say thanks!

We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited. Don't be late and be sure to check in with the organizers when you get there. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.

¡Todo gratis! No intercambio de dinero, no negocios, no trueques. ¡¡¡Mercado libre completamente gratis!!! Trae lo que gustes, toma lo que necesites.
Este mercado libre es basado en una economía de regalar. ¡No al capitalismo! Trae tus cosas especiales que ya no puedes usar pero no quieres echar a la basura. ¡Trae tus talentos para compartir! Trae comida! primero en llegar, primero en ser servido. Espacio es limitado. Si traes cosas grandes llevalas al final de mercado si sobran.  

And also at SubRosa in the courtyard in a couple Saturdays check out...

Queer Plant Swap! 🌿🌱 - Saturday, April 24th, 1 - 4pm

Spring is here! Got way too many houseplants? Hoping to swap your wilted fern for some hardy succulents? Planted too many starters this season and want to spread the love? New at gardening? Awesome! Join us for a plant swap where you can exchange houseplants, seeds, garden starters, tips and build community with other LGBTQ folks!  Contact Ezra at (831) 425-5422 or trans@diversitycenter.org with any questions.

Really Really Free Market and more!!!

Greetings all!  It's been awhile since our last SubRosa announcement post - and we're still here!  A year ago we had our last show at SubRosa (here's website post from a year ago about happenings at SubRosa - http://www.subrosaproject.org/2020/03/thurs-show-fri-art-openings-at-subrosa.html).  And a few days after we decided to shut down because of the spreading pandemic, before the shelter in place was declared in Santa Cruz - little did we know how long and deep an impact the COVID-19 pandemic would have on us all.  Now more than ever we are committed to community health and well being and to nurturing a community space to learn and grow and explore and share - for relationships beyond measure, in the here and now.

And here's some information about some happenings at SubRosa 
and around Santa Cruz in the days ahead...



-This Sunday! 11 - 2pm - Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. With pandemic protocols- let's share community care!

This gathering is not about the "stuff" we give and take, but more about how we can freely give and receive from each other.  This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! But come to the really really free market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. More info at Really Really Free Market at SubRosa Instagram AND RRFM at SubRosa Facebook event

-Also Sunday! From https://www.instagram.com/santacruzmutualaid/  join us in poking fun at the absurdity of government or just come to dance and dress up! Calling all you clowns, queens, dykes&fags, put on your freakiest sunday best and join us for a spectacular queer celebration ‪March 14 at 2:30pm‬! Meet us at SubRosa for a parade of juicy tunes and dancing (bikes, rollerskates welcome!) 

-On Saturday! At downtown clocktower. From https://www.instagram.com/a_place4us_/  please join Santa Cruz community members this Saturday, March 13th at 3pm to rebuild the altar at the downtown clocktower. March 13th will mark one year since Breonna Taylor was murdered by the police state. Bring your loved ones, and also offerings such as flowers, artwork, candles, photos, etc. Please wear masks and practice physical distancing. Rest In Power Breonna. ❤️

This Sunday! Really Really Free Market! // Nov - SubRosa's 12th birthday! // & more!!!

-This Sunday! Nov 8th, 12-4pm - Yup! Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. With pandemic protocols- let's share community care! The free market a month ago was such a wonderful time we're doing it again.  https://www.facebook.com/events/387691795917831/ and https://www.instagram.com/p/CHMoYXIARHa/
You probably know all the usual protocols to take because of the pandemic - please wear a mask and practice social distancing. Be prepared to wait in a short line if there is a good amount of people already in the space. 
If you have a donation, we encourage you to bring it anytime between 12-1. We will take donations until 2:30, at which point we not guarantee that we can take them. And we encourage you to bring clothes and gear for the cold weather for SCC Mutual Aid to distribute. And we'll have lots and lots of books!!! Plenty of reading possibilities await!
We all have something to share with each other... and to receive with gratitude is also a gift. This gathering is not about the "stuff" we give and take, but more about how we can care for each other. So, come to the Really Really Free Market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines... your free box). 
We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited. Don't be late and be sure to check in with the organizers when you get there. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.

-This November 1st was SubRosa's 12th birthday! Although we're not operating in the same ways during the pandemic, SubRosa and the collective is still active in different ways. See our linktree in bio about ways to support SubRosa during this challenging time and for a bit of SubRosa history and a slice of Santa Cruz radical history. https://linktr.ee/SubrosaSC and https://actionnetwork.org/fundraising/support-subrosa...

From the SubRosa history post: "September and October 2008 we worked on the inside and courtyard at a space at 703 Pacific Avenue that was soon to be named SubRosa. Lots of folks helped for lots of hours.  On Halloween we were still working on the inside, painting and other last minute touches.  People would drift in and out in costume to help until late into the night.
.
The next evening, November 1st was our opening with an art show and music!  It poured rain that night and the courtyard flooded.  We called the outside area the info-swamp and set down blocks of cement as stepping stone islands.  Inside the space was packed and humid.  The paint started dripping down the walls and quite a few people went home wearing the paint on their clothes as they unwittingly leaned against the wet walls...hopefully a nice reminder of a great opening night."

Much appreciation to all the collective members over the years and to so many that have contributed to the space - and may we have many more years ahead!

Lots of info sharing online (Instagram etc) - Here's a few of many pages for central coast - Posts & stories & websites!!! Possibilities to contribute in various ways (from http://journal.subrosaproject.org/2020/11/lots-of-info-sharing-online-instagram.html)
