Black Rose is a 25 year old collectively run not-for-profit library and bookshop. We run out of a radical space at 22 Enmore rd in Newtown, Sydney, Australia.
Our current aim is to provide radical media and literature to our local community. We also offer use of the space to progressive political community groups for meetings and/or events. A donation is requested and the collective decides on a case by case basis.
Black Rose has been run by various groups of radical Sydneysiders (in various locations throughout the Inner West) for 25 years.
Black Rose is run collectively, that is, a group of people with similar interests and aims come together and make decisions based on a consensus model. No one is in charge and all the tasks we need to do to keep the space open are shared amongst us, from maintaining the library to cleaning.
The collective is open and we are happy to welcome new members to help run and staff the space.
The collective meets every Monday night at 6:30 pm in Black Rose.
If you'd like to get involved but can't make Monday night meetings, send us an email. We'll figure something out.
If you don't have time to volunteer, but would like to support Black Rose, please consider donating to our bank account. We can always use the extra cash.
There are heaps of ways for folks to get involved. Here are some ideas:
