Come, enjoy and be in community with us at the Community Care Day: Winter Edition! 

Hosted by the 3rd Space Collective

Winter has come y’all! In response to this and all the things that this season brings, next week Thursday, 12/21, the 3rd Space Collective is hosting a Community Care Day! Join us and bring your friends! The event will be from 6 PM - 9 PM at our Manhattan Office 147 W 24th St. #3  New York, NY10011


This event is all about care and building community. We do that by coming together with food to snack on, music to sway to, crafts to play with, items to share or trade and group sessions on healing and self care.  We come together in joy as comrades and as community practice tangible ways to build with and support each other! This is an opportunity to hold each other and be still -- to take a pause from our day to day lives and hustles.


December 21st also marks the Winter Solstice: the second time in the year when the sun “stands still”. It is the longest night (shortest day) of the year. Let's come together to celebrate and bring light to each other where ever and however we can. If you struggle with seasonal depression like me, you know exactly the benefits of light - no matter the source.



So what exactly is happening, you might be wondering??

  • Swag Swap:
    • Following tradition we will have the grand clothing swap market! Come get some new threads, and (if you can) offer* some gently used and clean items for the rest of community.
