-"On Saturday night (February 3rd) from 6pm to 9pm - you are invited to a Brigid ritual that will be largely co-created." - excerpts from invitation below…

"We are amidst the season of Imbolc, or the Festival of Brigid, the halfway point between the long night of Winter Solstice and the balance of Spring Equinox. "Imbolc" has been roughly translated as "sheep's milk" or "in the belly" — signifying the time that these pastoral people were celebrating the promise, and hope, and fragility of new life in their midst.  And Brigid is one of the Celts' most revered deities.  She is the patron of the well, the forge and poetry — and this is coming from a culture where a satire from a good poet could dethrone a king. And so what does this mean to us? That's a real question, you know."" // "Very practically it means that it's time for another gathering. On Saturday night (February 3rd) from 6pm to 9pm - you are invited to a Brigid ritual that will be largely co-created. Read the rest of the invite and get logistical details (like location - note: NOT at SubRosa) at (from friends that have also contributed to the Free Skool Santa Cruz summer and fall sessions)

About our wonderful neighbor, The Bike Church (enter on Spruce St) - "The Bike Church is a project of the Hub and has been Santa Cruz's only community bike shop since 1998. Our shop functions in a DIY/DIT (Do-It-Together) manner: we provide the tools, space and instruction for individuals to fix their own bike with the guidance of knowledgeable mechanics. We ask for a donation of $5-15 per hour to use the shop--no one is turned away for lack of funds. We provide used and new parts for affordable prices, and have many used bikes for sale. We give away kids bikes for free. Our shop is run by a collective of mechanics and apprentices who are all paid equally. We use consensus meetings to make decisions about the running of the shop."

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 part of the Hub Community Center, in downtown Santa Cruz, CA which is the unceded homelands of the Awaswas-speaking Ohlone people known as the Uypi, who stewarded these lands since time immemorial. Centuries of colonial violence led to the removal and displacement of the Uypi. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.

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.
