Red May is a month-long spree of red arts, red theory, and red politics based in Seattle, Washington. We gather in bookstores, movie theaters, bars, parks, cafes, alleys, and auditoriums to share in discussion and plot ways forward toward a world in common: a world beyond capitalism. While we will continue our annual collective hurdle over the wire of our capitalist horizon, now you can join us throughout the other 11 months of the year.


Subscribe to our channel, view our archives, and learn more about segments like The Social Movements Lab with Michael Hardt and Sandro Mezzadra. 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.





Red May has teamed with This Might Not Work to bring a variety of conceptual art projects from over 20 artists in previous years. See what inspires us to turn Red.
