Queer Kick-It! and more this week at SubRosa! and elsewhere...

Queer Kick-It!
Some games. Some snacks.
Hella queers.

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.

And Later that evening at 7pm, Walter Mitty and his Makeshift Orchestra are on tour and playing in Santa Cruz! https://www.facebook.com/events/384204111760663

Sunday, Nov 16th, 3-4pm:  Potluck and Letter Writing to Prisoners

Upper Campus FOREST WALKS schedule: Fall 2014

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!

Wednesday, November 12: Forest Birding by Ear
w/ John (JOGA)—7:00am @ North Remote
Bring binoculars & a field guide if you have them. RSVP appreciated: jfgarret@ucsc.edu
There are many birds around Upper Campus throughout the fall, though some are high in the canopy and can be challenging to see. We’ll listen closely to identify whatever’s there and sieze on opportunities for photon-to-eyeball

Saturday, November 15th: Upper Campus—Have you been Lichen it?
w/ Penelope—1pm @ North Remote
Bring if you have it: notepad, handlens
Join me on a walk around Upper Campus, meetin’ and greetin’ the lichens and hopefully some other members of kingdom fungi. Yay! Let’s get stoked!

Sunday, November 16th: All Ages Nature Games
w/ Naali—2pm @ North Remote
Heavy rain cancels
Learn to play fun games like firekeeper, bear/salmon/mosquito, and ‘fire in the forest.’ These games help kids to develop their senses and awareness in nature, but I want to play them with adult friends too! (all ages are welcome)

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.
