The Base is an anarchist political center in Bushwick, Brooklyn, committed to the dissemination of revolutionary left and anarchist ideas and organizing. The mission of the space is to spread ideas and practices to the broader populace and provide a place where individuals can learn, grow, and organize outside of traditional activist and educational institutions.
We provide a foundation for fostering the ideas and theory of people who have either a preliminary background in political thought, or who have not grappled with political theory at any level. Furthermore, we establish a framework where creative modes of sharing are encouraged, with the goal of spreading these modes beyond the confines of the space itself.
We intend to establish a sociopolitical model in New York City where participants can create projects that are expansive and creative. Lastly, this is a place where people can grapple with, organize, and find solutions to issues that affect their living situation in a constructive environment.
