ONLINE: Thurs- Neuroqueer Group // Sat- Cactus Bloom presents: Livestream Instagram Show!!! // & More!!!

As of Saturday, March 14th, SubRosa (and other Hub projects) has cancelled
all in person gatherings and events until further notice. 
The collective is exploring ways it can support its members and communities through 
mutual aid and support of community-based response efforts.

~Tonight - Online, 7:30pm! Neuroqueer Group - info below for joining online

We are neuroqueer, neurodivergent and neuroemergent. We have nervous systems which challenge the norms of psychiatry, ability and social expectations. Many of us have been deeply pathologized from a young age. Many of us have had difficulty recognizing the validity of who we are, difficulty perceiving and developing our abilities, our gifts, in the climate of pathologization we've been steeped in. But we have the chance to form new circles of validation, to immerse ourselves in affirming spaces, to be "believing mirrors" for each other. And some of us have learned ways to embrace who we are and would love to share about it! Life can be difficult or just different for us so let's talk about it! (or draw, stim, sign, sing, dance about it). If that' s what you' ve been dreaming of, please join this co- facilitated circle.

Details: This is a non-structured sharing space with revolving facilitators. We may decide to focus on a specific discussion topic or not. Non- verbal means of communication and sharing or just being will be welcomed. 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 7:30 - 4/9, 4/23, 5/7 and ongoing! And more info at post at 

Accessibility info: This is now online. If you have any accessibility needs for this group now that it's online, please let us know!  Open to folks from all regions but check your time zones bc this is on PST.

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.
