Welcome to Project Artaud, a pioneering arts complex in San Francisco’s Mission District. Project Artaud is one of San Francisco's leading artist communities, housing 3 theaters and 2 dance studios. It is also home to arts practitioners and educators - over 70 painters, sculptors, designers, photographers, filmmakers, writers, musicians and performers.
We’re a member-run, member-supported non-profit organization. In 1971 our founding members rehabilitated and converted a factory and city block built in 1924 to create housing and studio space, artists’ resources and community. Today a multi-generational group of members guide this organization forward, still relying on the volunteer participation of the membership to keep Project Artaud a thriving place.
