BICI CENTRO (Santa Barbara)
Bici Centro is a low to no cost bike program where community members learn to work on bikes in a multi-lingual, comfortable and fun setting. We help participants of all ages learn to rebuild good, used bikes and we maintain an inventory of used bike parts taken from otherwise broken bicycles. Bici Cento empowers its members by teaching bicycle repair, craft and creativity, as well as an appreciation of the independence and self-sufficiency the bicycle provides them.
BIKO GARAGE (Isla Vista)
The Biko Garage is an open, respectfully run, and cooperatively managed community space inspired by Stephen Biko, an intellectual anti-apartheid leader, who shared a vision of a world where people of all races, genders and backgrounds can learn from and support one another across boundaries. The Biko Garage furthers that vision by providing a positive space for meetings, events and expressions through music, art, media and community activism.
BONFIRE COLLECTIVE, CAFE & BOOKS
The Bonfire Coffeehouse is creating a worker-owned and self-managed cafe, bookstore and all-ages show space committed to providing radical and alternative books and literature, ethically sourced food and drinks, and a friendly, open social space in Santa Barbara.
