Headlands’ artists programs support artists of all disciplines—from visual artists to performers, musicians, writers, and videographers—and provide opportunities for independent and collaborative creative work. Our impact is evident in the lives and careers of the artists who have participated in our programs, and the experiences of our visitors.
Several times a month we host public events such as open houses, exhibitions, conversations, community meals, walks, and workshops. Regardless of the format, events are designed to connect visitors to art in real time.
We can tell you more, but the best way to really understand is to visit.
As we build towards a more just and inclusive future, the following values guide Headlands’ culture and make equity and access an ongoing, everyday expectation in our community. We cultivate these values in all our work and provide time, space, and resources to imagine new ways of living and being together. We commit to an ongoing practice of learning and unlearning, and prioritize an organizational culture that invites multiplicity, honors difference, and seeks solutions that advance diversity and accessibility.
- Collaboration & Transparency
We foster a creative ecosystem that promotes discourse and openness in order to support our varied communities in all aspects of their creative process.
We center the humanity and lived experience of all people—in particular those with historically marginalized perspectives—and act with compassion and commitment towards our goals of equity and inclusion.
- Risk-taking & Growth
We believe our growth as an organization occurs at the edge of our comfort and we work from a place of continuous learning and possibility.
- Curiosity & Imagination
We embrace the role of creativity in the expression of human dignity and support, advocate, and champion opportunities for all to claim their right to imagine and develop new ideas and processes.
