The Red Vic is an intentional community that supports creatives to connect and be in action around impactful projects. We are around 18 to 22 residents working to build a rich commons, and we also offer select visitor spaces that make staying here like coming home to friends & family.

Take a look at our gitbook here for how this community runs

While here, we invite you to attend events and host your own, from talks, classes and skillshares to music nights, art shows or family dinners. We host put lucks every wednesday. Learn more on our FAQ.

Built in 1904, the Red Victorian has been a cornerstone of the Upper Haight and a gathering place for revolutionaries, artists and travelers. This building was an important meeting place through the Summer of Love, housing political protests, radical new ideas, and Sami Sunchild's artwork, creativity, and conversations around creating world peace. The building was leased by a new group and renovated in the summer of 2014. We are committed to providing an inspiring space for our community, visitors, and neighbors alike.
