-Saturday, November 16th, 12 - 3pm: Really Really Free Market! (Every 3rd Saturday! - fall schedule)
Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. Now every third Saturday! We all have something to share with each other... and to receive with gratitude is also a gift. This gathering is not about the "stuff" we give and take, but more about how we can care for each other.
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.
And Saturday November 16th, 11am - 5pm at the RCNV --
The Santa Cruz Zine Fest 2019
SubRosa, the Fábrica and other Hub folk will also be tabling.
From the event post: "What is the Santa Cruz Zine Fest 2019? #SCZF2019 is a gathering of local zinesters sharing their work and reflecting on the role of zines in the world today. We want to celebrate and highlight the way that zines can be used as powerful tools to fuel political struggles, liberation, and resistance to oppression on both the grand political scale and in personal experiences. We will exalt especially the work of marginalized voices, including but not limited to BIPOC, Queer/ Trans/ Genderqueer/ LGTB+, and disabled artists."

***Monday November 11th, 11am - 6pm: Join us at the Black Mesa Weavers Rug & Craft Sale at the MAH for this rare opportunity to purchase rugs directly from visiting Diné (Navajo) artisans from Big Mountain/Black Mesa, Arizona. These artisans practice an ancient weaving tradition intricately tied to their sacred lands and way of life.
11:00am - 6:00pm Rug & Craft Sale // 3:00 - 3:45pm Speakers //
Free admission // Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History, 705 Front St, Santa Cruz
Diné families at Big Mountain have been resisting forced relocation policies on their ancestral homelands since the mid-1970s. The purchase of weavings supports the independent livelihoods of families whose homeland has been devastated by coal strip mining.
Hand made jewelry by Diné and Amah Mutsun artisans will also be offered for sale.
