Founded 1985
Santa Fe, United States


Founded in 1985 by artists for artists, SFAI is an independent arts organization forging critical inquiry and cultural exchange among artists, creative practitioners, and the broader community. We support and amplify dynamic artistic practices that engage complex social issues, inspire individual transformation, and inform collective action. SFAI hosts international social justice themed residencies and fellowships for diverse artists and creative practitioners; public programs featuring interactions with artists, content experts, and community changemakers; exhibitions; panel discussions; community art actions and projects; and educational outreach for adults and youth. We are committed to supporting marginalized and underrepresented artists, and creative practices that offer fresh insight and innovative strategies in response to critical local, national, and global issues because SFAI believes in artists and creative practitioners as catalysts for positive social change.
