Interested in being part of East Side? Here’s how you can get involved:
Come hang out with us!
The easiest way to get involved is to come by during open hours, currently 4-8 on Thursday through Sunday. You can read or purchase radical zines, check books out of the Sedition Library, use our open wi-fi or community web kiosks, make protest signs, or just hang out and keep us company. We maintain a radically safe space – to find out more about our resistance to oppression, please click here.
Volunteer to help us get things done
We are always in need of people to help with, well, everything. We need help with everything from sweeping the floor to finding more volunteers. Your level of commitment is always left up to you – you can jump in when your free time permits, commit to regular hours, or even join the collective. No matter how you fit into the picture, we need you!
Curious about what you would do at open hours? Check out this google doc.
To get started volunteering, please fill out this form. If you don’t hear from us in a few days something may have gone wrong, so ping us on facebook, email us, or just drop by and poke us.
Host an Event
Be it potluck, skillshare, performance, lecture, or movie night, East Side exists in order to bring the Houston community together, and we need YOU to make that happen! We are home to a variety of events, from punk shows and poetry readings to craft nights and community meetings. If you would like to host an event at East Side, great! Email the collective at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you. For the current list of events, check out the calendar.
If you’ve got old furniture, books, shelves, dishes, mops, buckets, or other miscellaneous items you might think are trash, hit us up – we might be able to use what you don’t need. Or, consider donating financially to help keep the space up and running.
Spread the word
Tell your friends about us. Better yet, help us out by handing out flyers to people you know.
Feel free to contact us to let us know how you’d like to get involved.
