-Friday, June 7th: 3 events happening at the same time!

     7-9pm: First Friday: Atmosphereans

Come check out SubRosa's First Friday art installation! ATMOSPHEREANS is UCSC film student, Diana Bucio's, interactive art installation that centers the experiences of Hollywood's film extras. The installation will be happening inside SubRosa.

In Diana's words: "My aim is to provide a space in which attendees can engage critically and physically with the notion of the film extra. It is an opportunity to suggest a new perspective about the type of labor they provide and also give a tactile experience that will hopefully spark conversation, debate, and ultimately, a new way of understanding."

     6-9pm: at the Fábrica -- First Friday: Border Biodiversity

A First Friday open house at the Fábrica with a live screen printing pop-up! Flag materials provided, or bring a shirt to print on. There will be a border political postcard writing workshop and immigrant advocacy legal observer trainings happening concurrently, co-hosted by our neighbors at YARR. Hope to see you there!

A collaborative, participatory research-based art/science project, the Border Biodiversity project seeks to educate and engage participants in a social and environmental critique of current U.S. border policy. Come silkscreen science illustration-inspired images of borderlands animals whose necessary patterns of natural migrations would be damaged and disrupted by the proposed U.S./Mexico border wall.

The Border Biodiversity project is a project of the UCSC Norris Center for Natural History and SymbioArtlab. For more info about the project and contributing artists, please visit

This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! But come to the really really free market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. 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. Don't be late and be sure to check in with the organizers when you get there. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.

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.
