This weekend SubRosa! And beyond!

SubRosa is a collectively run anarchist community space - 

let's create together the world(s) we want to live in now.

  • Screenings & Readings - "Calling on you writers and film heads to come out of the woodwork…" Wednesday March 27th - excerpts from @liviacharman 

"Hi <3 friends and I have been desiring more poetry and film in SC for some time, so we are making it happen…"

* Ivanna Baranova - reading from her new book "Continuum" and with new work - @ivanna.jpg 

** Livia Charman - like vapor lifting from the wet roof when the sun emerges from behind the dark clouds - @liviacharman 

*** @l__eshy will most likely have some other literary treats in store (you'll have to wait until Listening Lounge for the literal donuts though)

7pm // donations accepted- notaflof! // all-ages // dry space // safe(r) space // anti-capitalist space // respect the space and each other!

*** Hosted with support from S.C.U.M. (Santa Cruz Underground Music) - the revival of an old anagram to rekindle a collectivized effort towards performance and skill-share across experimental art spaces and mediums. @scum.events  // Info from SubRosa IG post - https://www.instagram.com/p/C45-N87RW0i/ 

  • "Join us Friday, March 29th, 5-9pm at the shop (703 Pacific Ave, SC). Come say hello! Buy some art!  Help support mutual aid groups on the ground in Egypt and Gaza who are working to provide food and medical aid to Palestinians."  from @the_fabrica_ (our neighbor on the other side of the inside door in SubRosa).

"Thanks to everyone who came out to our fundraiser art show last month, folks who bought art, and artists who donated their work.

We have been able to raise over $2000 for 🍉. And we still have amazing art pieces available! And we're having another open house!"

And SubRosa will also be open - with art (too much to fit in the Fábrica) and space also available to hangout and socialize. The garden courtyard will also be available.

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." Contact info below.

@@@ Members of the Hub Community Center (SubRosa is part of this community center) created this form to collect emails as we move towards the launch of the Hub newsletter that will feature updates on Hub projects news and events:

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.
