Some games. Some snacks.
Wed. Nov. 12th 6-8pm
This is a space for queer folks to socialize and have snacks and beverages and enjoy each others company.
This first queer kick-it is for queer folks only and future kick-its to be decided.
Thursday, Nov. 13th noon-6pm: Studio Hours
Work on your creative projects (draw, paint, sculpt, write, knit, collage, doodle, and so on) in a quiet environment with other people who are doing the same. Creative work is an essential part of life, and having a set place and time to engage in these activities in the company of like-minded people can foster accountability in developing consistent creative practices. The studio staffer will keep some basic tools and materials on hand for shared use. Use of tools and materials is free, but we do recommend a $1-$5 per hour donation for use of the space, to help cover rent and keep SubRosa open in the long term. No one turned away for lack of funds. Space also open for other uses as well, but Studio Hours are prioritized.
Also on Thursday at 6pm: Herbology Basics
come learn more!
Friday, Nov. 14, 7–9pm: Bring Your Own Board Game
Bring your own board game. Do it. It'll be fun.
Saturday, Nov. 15th, 12-3pm: Really Really Free Market
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. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.

Fall in Santa Cruz is the season of renewal. Parched trees shed their needles, cones, nuts & crispy leaves; long-awaited showers bring the sleeping splendor of the forest to life. Let’s explore together in this awakening forest that is threatened by UCSC expansion.
Walks are free and hosted by volunteers, with no university sponsorship. Unless otherwise stated, rain does not cancel!
