Mayday Space

Mayday Space is a multi-story organizing center and social hub in Bushwick that works in tandem with our sister space Starr Bar a short walk away. Mayday is both a neighborhood resource and a citywide destination for engaging programming, a home for radical thought and debate, and a welcoming gathering place for people and movements to work, learn, celebrate and build together.

As an organizing center and events space for grassroots organizations to host their fundraiser parties, leadership retreats and more, Mayday inspires and sustains a justice-oriented community that is both publicly identifiable and approachable. We are creating a new innovative model that connects to the solidarity economy, promotes a shared sense of stewardship, and attracts new individuals to social justice politics in a culturally-dynamic setting.

As a movement project, Mayday also works with long-time community organizers to amplify neighborhood issues such as immigrant rights, food justice, tenants protections, gentrification and displacement as well as broader global issues such as climate justice and Internet freedom. To carry out this work, we’ve co-created empowering leadership structures for collectively managing the space and shaping the direction of our programming and organizing projects.

By offering access to our space on a sliding scale (down to free access), we prioritize people of color, immigrants, women-led groups, LGBTQ, poor and working class communities. The programming events Mayday will encourage and curate will likewise emphasize the voices, creativity and leadership of frontline communities.

FAQs

Registration

Tickets are completely SOLD OUT! We are full of abundance and gratitude and ask that you do not contact us about trying to attend.  If you are White and grabbed a ticket, consider passing it to the BIPOC, QTPOC and non binary folks in your life. 

The convergence will be back in May 2019! This was and continues to be a massive undertaking and we will announce all of the ways in which you can be a part of the gathering next year when the time is right. The more intimate version aims to return in the Winter of 2019. 


Documentation

Questions around recording the event, including the mini series have been coming up quite a bit. The answer is this - beyond the limited clips of some sessions, we are not live streaming the event. This is with respect to what comes up for folks during the conference. 


Network

The goal of the conference and the mini series is to develop an ecosystem of folks who are intergrating the themes explored into their work. Over time, more will be shared on what this will look like and paths to collaborate beyond the intital conference.
