       10am:  Español/Ingles Conversation Group

SubRosa is hosting a Spanish/English conversation group starting August 17th! This group is open to anyone interested in practicing their Spanish or English conversation skills. The intention is to create a safe and comfortable environment where members of our community can teach and learn from each other. All levels of fluency are welcome. The group is free!  The group will be on the first and third Saturdays of the month.

Comenzando el 17 de agosto, acompáñanos en SubRosa para conversaciones bilingüe en español y ingles. El grupo es para personas interesadas en practicar su español o inglés en un espacio cómodo, amistoso y respetuoso. La meta del reunión es que participantes enseñen y aprendan uno del otro. Todos niveles son bienvenidos para contribuir. ¡Y es gratis!  El grupo será cada primer y tercer sábado del mes.  

       12 - 3pm: Really Really Free Market!

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.

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."

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, queer&homophobia, racism, ableism and other hierarchies.

SubRosa is in downtown Santa Cruz, CA, which is the ancestral homeland of the Awaswas-speaking Ohlone people.

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.
