Possibilities Manifest at SubRosa this week and beyond!

*Friday Nov. 8th:  An Evening of Performance and Magic at 7:30pm-  On this night we will explore the darkness that is inside of us. Not without celebration we will examine what is invoked through three performances and what we always carry within ourselves. Together, we will endeavor to name and honor the darkness and let it shine with us until spring.

With performances by:
Jessie James (spells dreams and heartstrings)
Sasha Rose the Legendary Poet (heavy truths/witness)
and Gabriel Saloman (political/magical noise!) on tour from Vancouver BC

*Sunday Nov. 10th:  Singing Together! 6-8pm (a Free Skool Santa Cruz offering)-  Sing your heart out! Come together for an afternoon of tapping into your voice and releasing your melodic truth. We will dive in with singing exercises to free up our vocal folds and explore ways to let our anxieties around singing melt away so that we can sing at our full potential. Then we'll share songs that remind us of our communal strength and wisdom, and play creatively with sound through guided and free form improvisations. No singing experience or skills are necessary; all are welcome!

*Tuesday Nov. 12th:  Build a Website With Wordpress, 5:30-7pm (a Free Skool Santa Cruz offering)-  Build a website with WordPress! Bring your ideas and come ready to work; this class is project-based. If you can send an email, you can learn to make online contact forms, event registrations, photo slideshows, mobile friendly sites, and more. In this class we will be creating a self hosted WordPress website (not a blog). Topics will include: hosting, installation, themes, plugins, and an overview of important features. Visit the website for more info and class location:

and a Folk Punk Show! 7-10pm-  I don't know much about it but it is on the SubRosa events calendar.

*Wednesday Nov. 13th:  Huff (Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom) Meeting, 11am–1pm-  HUFF is Santa Cruz's oldest and most stubbornly persistent grass roots homeless advocacy group.

*Thursday Nov. 14th:  Guitar Skills: Basic to Advanced at 5pm–6pm (a Free Skool Santa Cruz offering)-  Let's learn how to read tablature, play scales, play chords and basic strumming patterns, fingerpick, tune your guitar by ear, make a capo, string your guitar, and jam with others.

and later that evening is the Open Mic, sign-ups at 7:30pm, show at 8pm.  Come express yourself!  Donations accepted to support the space (NOTAFLOF)

*Friday Nov. 15th:  Self Knowledge for Anarchists, 5:30-6:30pm (a Free Skool Santa Cruz offering)-  Do I know myself well enough that my desire for change in the world translates into meaningful action? One approach is to begin from the ancient Socratic saying “Know thyself” -- if self- knowledge is the aim, then self-observation is one direct approach. In my life I have studied and attempted to apply the approach to self-observation brought to Europe and America by George Gurdjieff, and his student PD Ouspensky. It is non-authoritarian, and a-religious, and begins with the admonition to “Believe Nothing.” We will read and discuss selections from the Gurdjieff literature.

*Saturday Nov. 16th:  Really Really Free Market, 12-3pm (a Free Skool Santa Cruz offering)-  No money. No trades. Everything is free. This market is based on a gift-economy and thinks capitalism sucks. 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. At the end, please take away left over items that you brought with you.

and a bit later...Radical Mycology, 4-6pm (a Free Skool Santa Cruz offering)-  Build the world we want on the substrate of the old! The mysterious fungal kingdom plays an essential role in maintaining soil health, cleaning and distributing water, allowing for biodiversity and helping all plants to grow. There is vast potential for collaboration between humans and fungi to protect and restore our planet—from creating gardens to cleaning up toxic waste. This workshop looks at ways we can work with fungi help us with ecological restoration, permaculture and movement building. After the workshop we'll talk about specific projects we can work on in the Santa Cruz area, and having a Radical Mycology group here.

And come on down for our open hours...Thursday-Sunday 2pm to 7pm.  We are closed Monday and Tuesday, expect for special events, and we are open Wednesdays mid-day for some hours.

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
