Support Our Space! RSSC Fundraising Week

by nicolem ()

We've been active in the little red house on Roberts Street for the last six years, supporting critical, creative projects and collaborating with other groups and projects. We are run entirely by volunteers and have no consistent government funding. We exist entirely off donations from our community, and keep it going by keeping our costs low.
