E-Privacy Workshop // Open Hours // Open Stage // Clubrosa: Queer Dance Party // A Show! // Sin Barras // HUFF // & More!

At SubRosa In the Days Ahead!
All This and More!

-Thursday, Oct. 19, 7pm - 9pm:  E-Privacy Workshop: Week 5

We live in an age of unparalleled surveillance and ubiquity of digital technology.  Join us at SubRosa to workshop protection and awareness. This series of workshops look at issues and some (partial) solutions to digital surveillance. (Bring laptop if you have one; we can share if you do not). 

-Friday, Oct. 20:  Couple Happenings!

     10am - 1pm:  Open Hours!

    7:30 - 10:30pm:  Open Stage!


Subrosa's new take on Open Mic. Once a month on a Friday! What better way to spend a Friday night?!  Sign ups at 7:30pm. Show at 8! Each act will get 5-10 minutes depending on the evening.

This is a space for performance of all kinds. A space to be witnessed in your work. Performance art. Drag. Dance. Poetry. Music. Essays. Rants. Interactive games. Magic. This is an Open Stage.

With a critique of capitalism and acknowledgement of intersectional systems of oppression, we honor and wish to uplift less heard voices including those of queer, trans, femme, people of color and indigenous folks. We strive to create a brave space where we work with what and who is in the room.   We hope for this space to serve the radical performing artists in Santa Cruz and are open to collaboration!

Donations accepted and appreciated.  https://www.facebook.com/events/192060184669912 

-Saturday, Oct. 21, 9pm - 1am:  Clubrosa presents Wild Rumpus! A queer dance party with DJ JBEEZ

Come get down! Dress up in your best Wild Animal outfit for the photobooth at the end of Capitalism!

All are welcome. This is a brave space where you are invited to be yourself. Capitalism tells us to be small, tells us we should be alone. This Rumpus is a space to dance, to talk, and to connect. Let your wild creature out, what ever that is!

If you feel interested but unsure send us a message! https://www.facebook.com/events/514431212224445
