A loose collective of artists, teachers, scholars, activists, and other community members living in and around Santa Cruz. We want to examine and re-think our relationships to land, to ecosystems, and to other humans through the lens of art and justice, and we want to help create ways to get through the barely sufferable present together with creativity and joy while building a collective future in which we can all thrive.

LANDING programs are based in a broad understanding of art as a sensory and affective practice for drawing attention, deepening understandings, developing tools for communicating across difference, and creating new knowledge.

Issues that affect us all affect us differently. We believe that art can help create connections between varied experiences of being alive while respecting and learning from each other.
We are programming events with special attention to economic, racial, Indigenous, and environmental justice as they relate to land use and art practices.
