Where to find us next:

Regular Planning Meeting - 3:00PM-5:00 PM on Saturday, May 18

If you’ve ever wondered what we do behind the scenes to get ready for events and plan new projects, this is a great way to find out. Our meetings are open to anyone who thinks they might want to become a member, and we’re always recruiting for our board. This meeting will mostly focus on the upcoming salon and face painting events we have scheduled.

We usually meet at private homes, so please send us a message for the address.

“Ideas of Home” Salon - 7:00 PM-9:00 PM on Saturday, May 25

Please join us for the second salon in our 2019 series, this time with a housing theme. Artists and activists will come together to present their work on all things housing related. Think displacement, homelessness, what “home” means, Lift the Ban, affordable/accessible housing, and so on. We’ll tell you more about the presenters and where to buy tickets as we get closer to the event!
