SubRosa: A Community Space!

SubRosa is a collectively run anarchist community space in Santa Cruz, CA. For the last 12+ years, SubRosa has provided a space for meetings, music, film showings, open mic, art, open hours drop-by,  and so much more.

SubRosa is 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, homophobia, racism, and other hierarchies.

It's part of our mission to provide a space outside the realm of commerce. Your donations enable this community supported space to remain available. Please consider making an on-going monthly donation*.  Any size contribution helps to keep our community space open for events, shows, discussions, classes, performances and most importantly for you! We are grateful for your support.

*The monthly donations are helpful for us to be able to consistently budget our expenses.  And periodic and one-time donations are very welcome as well.
