In the coming months Rhizome Cafe will be going through a transition, and so it’s time for one last Crafts for a Cause. This will be the 6th and final craft fair in support of social and environmental justice held in this beautiful community space that we will all miss so much.
• Like always, Community groups have been invited to sell art and crafts to support their organizing work
• This year Rhizome Cafe will receive both the $2 entrance fee and the table fees of individual artists
in order to help them with their transition

Plus – zining!
While transitioning, Rhizome is carrying out a community zine project to reflect, connect and celebrate all that we’ve built together in the past 7 years. Submissions are welcome through June 30th and there will be space at Crafts for a Cause to view zine pages on display and contribute your own – a story, a memory, an image, poetry, whatever you’d like to share. All submissions will be displayed on the wall at Rhizome throughout the month. Many (though not all, because of space) will be selected for inclusion in the print version. The finished zine will be available for purchase in July.
