After over a year without gathering, we at Headlands are excited to welcome back one of our most honored traditions and far-reaching engagements: Open House. As we reopen our historic buildings to the public, we’re doing so on a reservation basis, with limited capacity per room/studio and more outdoor and distanced activities.
For this first Summer Open House Lite, we invite you to roam our campus, engage with artists in the Project Space Studio, experience new work and works in progress, and grab a house-made picnic lunch from the Mess Hall.
Open House connects visitors to the working process of artists and fosters casual conversations about the creative process. Scheduled in conjunction with Headlands’ Artists in Residence seasons, Open House features curated happenings and events scheduled throughout the day, including readings, performances, screenings, and guided walks.
Parking is limited! If you can, we encourage you to carpool, bike, or take the bus. Get more info on transportation and directions.
First-floor spaces in use for this event (Mess Hall, Key Room, Latrine, the Commons) are accessible to people with mobility aids. Second- and third-floor spaces are currently accessible only by stairs. Note that there is a steep hill from the MUNI 76X bus stop up to the Headlands campus; if you have accessibility requirements and are planning to attend Open House by public transportation, or if you have any questions regarding accessibility, please reach out to us in advance at email@example.com

Our campus consists of historic buildings which lack central air filtration or circulation systems; Whenever possible, windows will remain open to encourage air circulation. Sanitizing stations are readily available throughout our buildings. Contact tracing is an important part of reducing the spread of COVID-19. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you test positive for COVID-19 or experience COVID-19 symptoms following your visit.
