Link to "What To Do Instead of Calling the Police A Guide, A Syllabus, A Conversation, A Process"

Here is a series of articles covering various aspects of "What To Do Instead of Calling the Police." There is a lot of thought provoking material here that i am still wading through. And for me a critique of the police also extends to the "criminal justice sytem"... laws... courts... prisons... and so on.

May we live lives free from these oppressive institutional controls (that are also enacted in a variety of ways in how we relate to each other) and work together for collective liberation as an ongoing process.

And it is a googledoc, which isn't my favorite way to access information..but this is how it comes.

Hey How About That Fundraiser For SubRosa?  Well, I'm glad you asked! 

It is part of our mission to create a space outside the realm of commerce, and we have started a fundraising effort so we can focus more on running the space and less on hustling to make rent.  So far 4 people have committed to making small regular contributions.  And please join them (uh, I don't want to end up sounding like a public radio pitch)...so you know what we do at SubRosa!  We are grateful for your support.

Contribute Now! Support SubRosa!

Greetings! Welcome to our 2016 Summer Fundraiser!

As you know, SubRosa is a collectively run anarchist community space in Santa Cruz, CA, and for the last 8 years, SubRosa has provided a space for meetings, music, film showings, open mic, art, open hours drop-by,  and so much more.

It is part of our mission to create a space outside the realm of commerce, and we are starting a fundraising effort so we can focus more on running the space and less on hustling to make rent.  Your donations enable this community supported space to remain available. Please consider making an ongoing monthly donation (your monthly donations are helpful for us to be able to consistently budget our expenses, like rent).  Of course, one time and other periodic donations are welcome as well.  Any size contribution helps to keep our community space open for events, shows, discussions, classes, performances and most importantly for you! We are grateful for your support.

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
