Participate in Free Skool this summer!


-Saturday June 12! Lu Gold and a bunch of their peers, collaborators, and friends present, "Remember to Thank Your Hands" 6-10pm

This big ole group show presents works in just about every medium, from photography to sculpture to music to prints and many things in between. Come check it out and look at what our beat-up, cracked, dry, stained, carpal tunnel'd, etc. hands can do!!!  Please wear a mask and inside SubRosa will have limited capacity- happenings will be in the garden courtyard as well.  IG post and FB event post

-Sunday June 13th!  Really Really Free Market - ¡¡¡Mercado libre completamente gratis!!!  11-2pm

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.

-Saturday June 19th!  Juneteenth!  2-8pm

from IG post: Juneteenth is just around the corner! Join us for (the 3rd? 4th? year) of festivities at SubRosa including a soul food pop-up (sliding scale donations $5-$20, menu available soon) and a mini exhibit to commemorate the Black Panther Party, Afro-Futurism, LGBTQ+ black folks & more!

We're looking for more BIPOC vendors, artists, organizations, etc to come take up space! Celebrate black joy, liberation and community! DM https://www.instagram.com/pork_pockets/ or https://www.instagram.com/diversitycentersc/ if you want to collaborate.

-Call for Free Skool Santa Cruz class proposals - submission deadline June 7th 
Follow this link to submit your class idea! 
 
Join us for Free Skool Santa Cruz summer 2021 by offering a class or activity! As pandemic safety measures are shifting we are excited to relaunch a not entirely new, not all too different version of Free Skool Santa Cruz  - a project in mutual aid learning and sharing.
 
What skills do you have to share?
What types of classes would help grow more vibrant and self-reliant communities?
 
Our summer calendar will run from the summer solstice (June 20th) to the autumnal equinox (Sept 22). We will have two rounds of submission deadlines to add your class to our calendar. The first submission deadline is June 7th. Please send a description of the proposed class including location, any information about preparation participants should be ready with, contact information for the coordinators/teachers, and information about class accessibility. All classes will follow the recommended covid precautions. Please email questions to: freeskoolsantacruz@gmail.com
 
Follow this link to submit your class idea!
 

What is Free Skool Santa Cruz? A radically different approach to living and learning, Free Skool Santa Cruz is a grassroots educational project beyond institutional control. It is an opportunity to learn from each other and share what we know, to foster communities of mutual support and autonomy.
 
What does the "free" in Free Skool mean? Free as in free expression, free thought, and liberation. We try to keep Free Skool firmly fixed in a gift economy and outside the stream of commerce. While some teachers may ask for a donation to cover materials, no one is turned away for lack of funds. 
 
We see Free Skool as a direct challenge to dominant institutions and hierarchical relationships. The project strives to blur the lines between teacher, learner, and organizer. Free Skool is decentralized, with classes held in social spaces and parks.
 
Part of creating a new world is resistance to the old one. Through this project, we want to change the way we learn and the way we relate to each other.
We look forward to hearing your proposals!  -SubRosa collective members

Unfortunately, COVID arrived and brought a lot of need to our community. I am reaching out once again - although we were able to raise a lot last year, it is not enough to place a downpayment on an accessible vehicle - instead, as a recipient of benefits, it is jeopardizing my housing and medical.

SubRosa is a collectively run anarchist community space, a place to meet others and challenge our assumptions and act on our passions. We strive to create a vibrant environment for events, classes, meetings, organizing, performance, art, studying and more. SubRosa also offers radical literature for sale, and houses the Anarchist Lending Library. We welcome folks to join us in fostering an environment free from coercion, sexism, queer&homophobia, racism, ableism and other hierarchies.

SubRosa is part of the Hub Community Center, in downtown Santa Cruz, CA which is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.
