At Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI), we are artists, innovative thinkers, and engaged citizens. We cultivate creative leadership and invest in community, culture, and place to reimagine a more equitable world.

We fulfill our mission through our thematic artist residencies and fellowship programs, workshops and trainings, community projects, and events. Much of our programming relates to an annual theme, which is focuses on relevant social issues such as Equal Justice, Water Rights, and Immigration/Emigration, and the 2018/2019 theme,  Truth & Reconciliation.

If you believe in the role creativity plays in public education, if you believe in the benefit of cultivating exchanges with local, national, and international artists, if you believe in supporting social innovation in Northern New Mexico, then contribute to SFAI and participate in our programming.

Complex problems require interdisciplinary solutions. At SFAI, we bring together artists, architects, designers, writers, local community partners, and national arts organizations to develop solutions to the most pressing issues of our time.
