Headlands Center for the Arts
Headlands Center for the Arts provides an environment for the creative process and the development of new work and ideas. In creating Headlands, the founders sought to re-configure the role of the artist from a marginalized position to that of a central participant in our society. Since 1987, Headlands has developed this idea into an array of dynamic programs for artists and the public, including residencies, lectures and performances, Open Houses, community-based projects, publications and commissions. Over 1,000 artists have worked with Headlands in its various programs. Headlands hosts artists from different disciplines and cultural backgrounds, and its public programs bring artists together with scholars, activists and other professionals. By facilitating interaction across traditional boundaries, Headlands works to introduce artists and audiences to new creative processes and to broaden the range of possibilities for art's function in society.
