The 418 Project has secured a new, permanent home.  At our much larger facility, we will be becoming more diverse and inclusive, encompassing a greater variety of programming, and growing as a true architectural, functional, and spiritual bridge between downtown Santa Cruz and the River at the Dragon Gate.
Throughout 2021 we will also be planning our remodel, in order to repurpose our building and create affordable, adaptive spaces to serve YOU—teachers, BIPOC, arts entrepreneurs. If you would like to support this accessible local and regional home for embodied art, please contact Executive Director Laura Bishop at: Laura@the418project.org for more information and a tour of the facility.
Many Thanks to Gabrielle & Kenneth Adelman for making dreams come true.
We honor the spirit of the Dragon and the ancestors who hold and uplift us, acknowledging that our building sits on the unceded territory of the Awaswas speaking Uypi tribe and the historical ground of Santa Cruz's Chinatown. 
In the coming year, we invite you to join us in Fifty First Fridays, our journey into new relationships and Embodied Community Art.  Want to make art, present a performance, dance, class, or workshop?  Now is your chance!  POC and queer people are especially invited to submit ideas.  Email us with your idea at: community@the418project.org.  All ideas will be considered.
