Ten Years That Shook the City | San Francisco Village


Our vibrant programming is the gateway through which members gain empowering information, share experiences, and develop a deep sense of belonging to the community. At a time when older adults may find their social networks shrinking, San Francisco Village programs offer opportunities to expand. Programs are continually evolving, reflecting the interests and requests of our dynamic membership, and generally fall into one of six categories: Healthy Aging, Express Yourself, Member-Led, Connections Across Generations, Navigating Today’s World, and Exploring San Francisco.

On average, San Francisco Village hosts 30 program events per month. Take a look at our calendar and get involved!

Shaping San Francisco, a participatory community history project and living
archive, published Ten Years That Shook the City: San Francisco, 1968–1978 to document the power of communities coming together during the long -Sixties. A collection of first-person and historical essays following the Summer of Love, Ten Years discusses various social, environmental, and labor movements that continue to shape the City today. Co-editor LisaRuth Elliott and contributors to the anthology share stories from a time when transformative social values burrowed deeply into San Francisco and spread far beyond. Shaping San Francisco (http://shapingsf.org/) facilitates the discovery and preservation of local history through public discussions, publications, bicycle and walking history tours, and the digital archive, Foundsf.org.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”
