Headlands Center for the Arts


Opportunities to see the world a little differently occur daily here at Headlands—around the dinner table, in artists’ studios, and out in the landscape. For the past 35 years, Headlands has invested in the power and possibility of creative exchange, providing the time, space, and resources necessary for artists and visitors alike to expand their consciousness, engage in dialogue and new ideas, and connect with what inspires them.

Your contribution today ensures Headlands remains an essential place of human connection and creativity in the future—for the 90+ artists we welcome from around the globe each year to the more than 12,000 visitors who experience the creative process up close and in person.
