Between the forest and the ocean, among the students and the yuppies, Anarchists in Santa Cruz have fostered a close-knit community dedicated to destruction of this world and the creation of another. Santa Cruz is a hub of anarchist culture and resistance, with a long history of radical struggle and active anarchist projects spanning decades. Santa Cruz is proud to host the Santa Cruz Anarchist Convergence, a four-day anarchist event for building community and resistance and sharing radical ideas.

Thu May 7th through May 11th SubRosa Infoshop, 703 Pacific Ave, Santa Cruz

What's Going On

The convergence will include an Anarchist Bookfair, FreeSkool Conference, Workshops, Speakers, Discussions, Music, Games, and other events.

Santa Cruz will host its first ever Anarchist Bookfair, a two-day exposition of books, zines, pamphlets, art, film/video, and other cultural and political productions of the anarchist movement, on May 9th and 10th at SubRosa Infoshop.

The North American Free Skool Conference happens in conjunction with the Santa Cruz Anarchist Convergence. Activities include a Free Skool Community Picnic, panel and group discussions, and a campfire.

There will be three days of workshops, panels, and presentations from May 8th to 10th to provide further opportunities to learn more and share our own experience and creativity. Workshop tracks include Community Inter-relatedness, Green Scare/Security Culture, DIY infrastructure, Applied Anarchisms, and Resistance.

Additionally, there will be a kick-off performance event, shows, music, bike games, picnics, campfires, and skill-shares.

You Are Invited

The event starts with an all-day orientation May 7th at SubRosa Infoshop, followed that night with a Kick-Off performance event.

Bring yourselves, your radical ideas, your passions, your comrades, and whatever you need to self-sufficiently take care of yourself and your crew. We will try to provide housing and food to those who need it.

Participate

If you are interested in speaking, or participating in a workshop, panel, or discussion, or if you would like to table at the anarchist bookfair, please contact us immediately at santacruzanarchist@riseup.net.
