About art show: Stef Wolf is a local embroidery artist, and Fábrica co-founder, interested in the mindful use of stitching to foster intramural and interpersonal healing. The large format embroidered maps in this exhibition are the record of an interactive art project documenting historical and contemporary migration routes of individuals and peoples. The routes described by these works were offered by visitors to the MAH in fall of 2016. "We Came Real Far" offers glimpses into the concrete motions of migration as well as the intergenerational traumas and interconnected sacred healing intimately intertwined. Co-hosted with our neighbors at the Fábrica, in collaboration with YARR Santa Cruz.

Join us for the next ⭐️ Night Market ⭐️ at The Santa Cruz Hub for Sustainable Living, from 6-9 pm. We'll have curated vintage and accessories, handmade goods and clothes, ceramic wares and planters, succulents, herbal medicine, art, jewelry, delicious vegan food, drinks, and more!

Santa Cruz Zine Fest 2019 is happening and EVERYONE is welcome! Saturday, November 16th at the RCNV. Doors open at 10 am and close at 5 pm. A more detailed schedule with the information of workshops and presentatios will be released forther on. This year, we'll gather at the Resource Center for Nonviolence for an entire day of ZINES tabling and showcasing, workshops (including one for kids!), presentations, yummy food, music, and an atmosphere of respect, collective work and solidarity. This event will seek to evoke a trend of DIY, all ages, accessible event to promote a more safer and accountable community.

This year, our goal is to highlight the ways that zines have influenced and fueled political struggles and resistance to oppression. Part of the way we wish to accomplish this is by prioritizing marginalized voices, including but not limited to BIPOC, Queer/Trans/Genderqueer/LGBTQ+, and disabled writers and artists. The focus will be on showcasing zines that explore the themes of resistance, political struggle, liberation, and oppression on the grand political scale, in local communities, and in personal lived experiences.

This event is FREE. Donations at the door will be very much appreciated. People of all ages are encouraged to come. There will be accessibility accommodations, but please let us know if there's anything in particular that we can do to ensure you the best experience. Questions or comments, please contact us at  SPREAD THE WORD, INVITE YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY!

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.
