The Domestic Light project is indebted to our many collaborating and supporting organizations as well as individual artists networks that are helping make the person to person connections needed to bring the project to life.
Following are some of our key collaborating and supporting organizations.
LEONARDO / ISAST is our lead partner for publication and dissemination through funding from the Creative Work Fund.
Leonardo is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 enterprising think tank, offering a global platform for creative exploration and collaboration that reaches tens of thousands of people across 135 countries. Since 1968, Leonardo has forged a worldwide transdisciplinary network to convene, research, collaborate, and disseminate best practices at the nexus of arts, science, and technology. Including scholars, artists, scientists, technologists, and thinkers, this network experiments with cutting-edge approaches, practices, systems, and solutions to tackle the most complex challenges facing humanity today. Leonardo, its flagship publication, is the world’s leading scholarly journal on transdisciplinary art, and anchors a robust publishing partnership with MIT Press. Its partnership with Arizona State University infuses educational innovation with digital art and media for lifelong learning; and its creative programs span events, exhibits, residencies and fellowships, scholarship and social enterprise ventures. https://leonardo.info/
SFArtsED GALLERY at the MINNESOTA ST PROJECT is our San Francisco presenter and host of the 2023-2024:
THE SFArtsED Gallery is located at the Minnesota St Project in San Francisco and runs a year long program of exhibitions in the gallery.

Djerassi Resident Artist Program provides work space and support to the project.
The mission of the Djerassi Resident Artists Program is to support and enhance the creativity of artists by providing uninterrupted time for work, reflection, and collegial interaction in a setting of great natural beauty, and to preserve the land on which the Program is situated. Djerassi is recognized internationally for its pre-eminence as an artist residency. We strive to provide the best possible residency experience for artists of superior talent from a diverse range of backgrounds and geographical locations. As stewards of a unique and beautiful property, we also seek to preserve the land and use our facilities wisely and efficiently for maximum benefit to the artists and with the least impact on the environment. https://djerassi.org/
