Come try out home made scones, cookies, or other sweet things (for donation), drink tea and coffee and hang out with some rad folks.
Join folks from Denver, CO and Richmond, VA for an evening of discussion about The Spaces Between, an ongoing project about what anarchyland looks like outside of major urban strongholds.
The first installment of this series of publications is complete and will be available at the event. The zine features interviews with people who are currently living in or once have lived in those places where nothing feels flammable and everything feels impossible. These kids aren't living in anarchist Disney land. Instead, they're living in the places where anarchists are struggling along in what can best be described as the project of anarchy. It isn't glamorous. It isn't meme ready. It can feel isolated. It is tireless and unrelenting nevertheless.
As this project continues there will be further interviews with anarchists in both the U.S. and Canada as well as essays. You can keep updated with release dates and future tour dates at spacesbetweentour.wordpres
These kids are still accepting both interview participants and essay submissions through September 2016. You can hit them up at firstname.lastname@example.org

-Monday, June 6th, 7:15pm: Sin Barras meeting
From the Sin Barras website "We will discuss ways that Sin Barras can support local and state-wide abolitionist campaigns and how we can further support loved ones inside and their families. We will also discuss what's going right here in Santa Cruz County. So please, bring your ideas and your desire to end the prison industrial complex!" https://sinbarras.org/
"Exhibitions Catalyst" (uh, person who did a lot of work setting up the exhibiting artists for the summer) Wes Modes was once very involved with SubRosa and was one of the founding members of the project and collective. The wonderful band Matador will also be playing, also friends of SubRosa. So, although there is no art opening at SubRosa this Friday, you can go to the MAH for a fine time (with folks that have history with SubRosa).
Build collaborative sculpture with Heidi Cramer about the San Lorenzo River. Share your scar stories and create prints with Nanci Amaka. Create your own mythologies with masks and divination with Huameng Yu. Meet the Art Works artists with a dynamic talk. Dance to live music from Matador + Friends. Enjoy an all-ages art activity in the classroom.
NEW EXHIBITIONS | Explore our new exhibition Art Works in the 2nd floor Solari Gallery. Create art with working artists. These are just three of the eleven artists who will transform the MAH's Solari Gallery into a series of open, functioning artist's studios this summer. You'll meet the artists themselves and become part of their process.
