About

The Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI)  is one of the few organizations still in operation on the Midtown Site, formerly known as the College of Santa Fe and the Santa Fe University of Art and Design. SFAI and our partners at Littleglobe and UNM applied for and received funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, to engage the local community in developing this vision. Our wonderful team continues to grow! Please see more about us here. 

 

We utilize ethical principles and a land acknowledgement that prioritize stewardship, community, and care. 

 

We developed the  Six Degrees of Connection project to focus on collecting individual stories about belonging, displacement, loss, hope, resilience, and to imagine the future - all from those with a connection to the neighborhoods surrounding Santa Fe’s Midtown Site. 

WHAT WOULD A THRIVING AND EQUITABLE MIDTOWN LOOK LIKE, IF WE IDENTIFIED AND INVESTED IN THE HISTORY, ARTISTIC TALENT, AND CREATIVE EXPRESSION OF OUR COMMUNITY?

Hello Santa Fe! Welcome to the Culture Connects Midtown Project.

 

The Culture Connects Midtown team is building a “cartography of creativity” for Santa Fe. We hope to gather a chorus of voices that will reveal the values inherent to the neighborhoods that are adjacent to the Midtown Site, and build a community archive on this website that is made by and for the people. 

​​

We invite you to participate with us! See below for ways in which you can join our work in building a cartography of creativity.
