In 2019, we formed a collective in Cleveland in order to open a social center. The social center concept is one that comes from European social movements, and refers to a space where a collective of people provides space and resources for political and community planned events.

Our plans were put on hold during the beginning of COVID, and for two years we have been organizing around social justice issues, making thousands of bottles of hand sanitizer (mainly for people protesting during the George Floyd Uprising), and planning our next steps.

Today we can announce that, due to the generosity of our lovely building owners, we have been able to sign a lease for a space in the Cedar-Lee neighborhood of Cleveland Heights. This space is located in a major commercial district, around the corner from a large high school, near independent theaters and galleries, and is an all around amazing place to provide services to the community.

The Rhizome House hosts a large open meeting space for reading groups, classes, lectures, open mic nights, or whatever one would want to fill the space with. There is a library with hard to find independent, underground, and radical books, pamphlets, and zines. The space is also home to a technology lab, where we will be teaching others how to 3-D print, solder circuits, make audio recordings, and use risograph machines for printing. Finally, we also host an enclosed classroom and meeting space, for groups that may want some privacy when meeting and talking.

We are now officially open and our event calendar can be found at We also have open hours every Sunday from 1-4PM during our "Crafternoon"
