Hosting Events @ Joy Bomb

Do you want to host an event at Joy Bomb Social Center?

Review our calendar of events then email the collective at joybombsocialcenter@proton.me with details of your proposed event.

Shows/Music...
Please contact Ben at joybombevents219@gmail.com to propose music events at Joy Bomb.

For any event...Before Reaching Out...
-Has the collective approved your event, including the date, start, and end time?
-Is it a one-time or recurring event?
-Who is the point person from your group? Do we have their contact info?
-Has it been added to the public calendar (if it’s a private event, it will show up as ‘RESERVED’)?
-Is one of our collective members in your group? If not, is one available to open and close the space?
-Would you like us to boost on social media? What is your plan for outreach? (flyering the street, etc.)
-Do you need use of any special equipment?

For outside groups that want to use Joy Bomb for events at which they will be collecting money or selling goods: no one should ever be denied entry to Joy Bomb for lack of money (e.g. if money is collected at the door for events, it should be on a donation basis); people selling goods and services can put a price to cover their expenses and labor, but we ask that prices be sliding scale to increase the accessibility and allow those with fewer resources to pay less while those with more resources pay more; if an organization that has outside funding or paid members uses the space, we ask they make a donation to the Joy Bomb to help us with our mortgage and other expenses we incur to keep the space open.
