This Weekend! Responding to Traumatic Events Workshop/ Singing Playshop/ Anti-Racist Organizing Workshop

This Weekend
At SubRosa!

-Sat. Dec. 13th, 12-5pm, Responding to Traumatic Events

This course will cover biological/physiological responses to extreme events and will explore ways to prepare and condition ourselves to thrive and survive. There will be lecture/discussion and practical application. Brings snacks, etc and materials to take notes if desired (part of the Action Training Fall 2014 Calendar Presented by Santa Cruz Forest Keepers).

-Sun. Dec. 14th, 5-6:30pm,
Singing Playshop with Kasia Moon!

    Learn techniques to develop the sounds you want to make with your beautiful body. This includes safe singing practices, a healthy breathing method, and games to loosen up creativity as it lends itself towards songwriting, improvisation, and oral presentation. Best of all -- Connect with friends old and new in a sweet community space safe for making silly sounds! If you've never ever sung a note, this is the place to be. If you find yourself singing the same notes over and over and want to expand your breadth, you're going to love this. If you've gone all over the place and want to hone in on what is true for you, yes come! Everyone will have plenty of chances to sing AND listen, and learn ways to get creative with what comes out of their pretty mouths.

Please bring a pen or pencil, paper, a reusable cup if you have one (for throat tea!), your ideas,
  friends, and a sense of adventure. This event is free of cost, though donations are appreciated!

and later that same Sunday at 7pm
Tools for White Anti-Racist Organizing: Part Two

    This is a space for anyone with an interest in dismantling racism (and intersecting systems of oppression) to collectively discuss effective ways for white people, specifically activists, organizers, and radicals, to talk to other white people about race and racism.

This will be less of a lecture and more of a skillshare: a place to learn from each other through talking about our own experiences trying to undo racism in our lives and communities. You don't need to be an expert, and you don't need to be white in order to attend.
Topics may include, and are not limited to:

- Confronting family/friends when they say something racist: how do you do it?
- What does it mean to be an 'ally'? What are some radical critiques of the term?
- How does race consciousness evolve for different people?
- What's the difference between racism and white supremacy?
- And much, much more...

Free topical literature will be included with the workshop, and SubRosa has a great collection of relevant zines for sale, for anyone wanting more resources. Bring yourself, an openness to dialog on complex subjects, and any food, drink, or resources you'd like to share!
Note: This is a two-part workshop, with the first part having taken place Thursday December 11th. There may be overlap between the two halves, depending on turnover in attendance.

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.
