SubRosa is a collectively run anarchist community space, a place to meet others and challenge our assumptions and act on our passions. We strive to create a vibrant environment for events, classes, meetings, organizing, performance, art, studying and more. SubRosa also offers radical literature for sale, and houses the Anarchist Lending Library. We welcome folks to join us in fostering an environment free from coercion, sexism, homophobia, racism, and other hierarchies.
Tawn is the director of youth programs for Bike Santa Cruz County. Tawn grew up in a family of artists: his father was a potter, and his mother a painter and poet. He attended Santa Cruz High and UCSC, where he studied art, creative writing, and eventually received a BA in Community Studies. After graduating, Tawn coordinated school gardens, ran a teens-as-teachers environmental education program, and trained UCSC undergraduates to teach their own sustainability-focused classes. In his free time he makes art, writes poetry, and hangs out with redwoods.
