About artists programs at Headlands
Headlands Center for the Arts is a multidisciplinary, international arts center located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in the Marin Headlands, a part of the Golden Gate National Parks. Artists programs at Headlands are designed to support artists, the creative process, and the development of new, important work. These programs provide opportunities for research, experimentation, professional development, and peer-to-peer exchange—and ultimately aim to foster creative breakthroughs and new modes of working and thinking.

All told, more than 70 artists participate in our programs each year. By bringing together local, national, and international artists from a wide range of disciplines—including visual and interdisciplinary artists, architects, dancers, choreographers, musicians, composers, writers, and curators—our programs enable the exchange of ideas and approaches that help catalyze new cultural and social perspectives.
