Affordable Housing Nonprofit for Artists Goes Solar
October 2 - October 3
Project Artaud is a pioneering arts complex located in San Francisco’s Mission District. Project Artaud is an artist community that provides affordable housing and studio space for over 70 artists and also houses three theaters and two dance studios that residents and members of the community can use for performances and practice space. Project Artaud was founded in 1971 when the founding members converted and rehabilitated an old canning factory built in 1923 into an artist live-work community.
Project Artaud provides affordable housing and studio space opportunities for artists of all disciplines, including painters, sculptures, designers, filmmakers, photographers, performers, writers, and musicians. Project Artaud is a member-run nonprofit, where members take turns serving on the Board and on various committees, including the facilities committee, arts committee, and landscaping committee, all of which help maintain and run Project Artaud.
Project Artaud went solar with RE-volv in the spring of 2021, which coincides with Project Artaud’s 50th Year Anniversary.
