-Thursday, August 16th, 7:30pm: Open Stage!

SubRosa's take on Open Mic. Once a month. Every month. 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/244023326440947/

**************
The Waters Connect Us // In Northern California, indigenous nations are fighting massive infrastructure projects that threaten their waters, fish, and indigenous lifeways. Increased water diversions from the Sacramento River watershed to Southern California cities and farmland threaten to drive Chinook salmon and other at-risk species to extinction. The Run4Salmon is a 300-mile prayer journey led by the Winnemem Wintu Tribe that follows the migration route of salmon from the San Francisco Bay to the McCloud River. This year's journey will take place September 15th-30th and your participation is invited. Learn more: http://run4salmon.org Follow #Run4Salmon on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter


In the Monterey Bay area, the Amah Mutsun tribe is waging an all-out campaign to stop a proposed sand and gravel quarry that would desecrate Juristac, one of their most important sacred places. Learn more at http://protectjuristac.org

Queercuts is back! With a Gay Clothing Swap! We'll be holding a free box with *gender affirming* clothes during our open hours from 4-7pm on Aug 2nd! 

Items like binders, make-up, ties and such will be there courtesy of those who've donated to the Diversity Center. Others are welcome to bring clothes as well to expand this queer wardrobe! Think of it like our Really Really Free Market but a miniature gay version. So come through and shave the side of your head! Upgrade your profesh 9-5 look! Or just shave that shit off entirely! Cuts will be provided by talented neighborhood barbers and done in an inclusive space! (Barbers/Clippers/Scissors are welcome to donate talent too!!) All reasonable folks welcomed. https://www.facebook.com/events/255514445245012/

-Friday, August 3rd, 6 - 9pm:  Art Show Opening: "Small Spells" by Abacus Corvus

"Small Spells" is a collection of paintings by Abacus Corvus. Each collaboration offers an image and intention, and the viewer's invited to use them like a lens to focus energy, or like a prism to broadcast blessings widely.


Abacus Corvus is the creative collaboration of Corina Dross and Jocelyn (Jo) Mosser—illustrators, writers, healers, sisters, and good friends. Corina Dross will be present at the closing reception on August 31st, with hand-sewn archival prints available that day only. (the flyer reads August 1st for opening but it's actually Friday the 3rd!). https://www.facebook.com/events/2534159740144545/

-Saturday, August 4th, 12 - 3pm:  Really Really Free Market // & a show in the evening!!!

No money. No trades. Everything is free. This market is based on a gift-economy and thinks capitalism is death. Bring food to share. 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). 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. First come first served, space may be limited. Requirements: Mutual respect. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.  https://www.facebook.com/events/703379463342638/

-Friday, July 27th, 7pm:  Holding Out - Housing is a Human Need! Film Series #1

"Holding Out":  With an eviction crisis reaching epic proportions in San Francisco, the city's residents must navigate changing landscapes and communities, while also facing the loss of their homes. Using storytelling to explore themes of memory, history, and community, Holding Out follows four embattled tenants as they reflect on their lives and fight eviction. Questioning the relationship between developers and City Hall, Holding Out exposes what is at stake, and who stands to lose, in San Francisco's determined quest to assert its role as the tech capital of the world.

Filmmaker Rebecca Gourevitch will be present for the after film discussion.

No one turned away for lack of funds! Donations accepted to SUR and Subrosa Community space // https://www.facebook.com/events/175871593282925/
