Red May is a month long arts festival and teach-in. In times of Health, we gather at bookstores, movie theaters, bars, coffee shops, restaurants, and auditoriums to share in discussion and plot ways forward toward a world in common- a world beyond capitalism. To rupture the boundaries of what can be said in public- and of the public itself- we bring to Seattle the most exciting and imaginative thinkers on the left, both from within and beyond academia, organizations, and social movements.
Though we're still not able to meet in person, this year we pushed the boundaries of our online events - with more events and speakers than ever before. Head to Red May TV to view livestreams and rewatch past events, learn more about our series The Social Movements Lab with Michael Hardt and Sandro Mezzadra, and other upcoming programs. Listen to our new podcast Cinder Bloc. featuring interviews, discussions, and stories about the world-making and world-breaking potential of life in late capitalism.
We've done all this so far through volunteer effort, donations, throwing everything on a credit card, and hoping for the best. But times change. Pandemics beat the hell out of you. And now we hope you'll join us to keep Red May moving forward into the future.
