Red Poppy Art House

Saturday, January 28, 2017

The Red Poppy Art House is a room on a corner in the Mission District of San Francisco, nestled between a myriad of communities. It is a place for slowness and the nuanced intermingling of ideas and activities generally termed “art.”

In this little room, they present a vigorous performance program spanning multiple disciplines and embracing both traditional and contemporary forms. They also host artist residencies, a socially-engaged professional development track and assist in curating space for the neighborhood-wide bimonthly MAPP happening (Mission Arts & Performance Project).

Behind the scenes, they relish in the role of matchmaker, seeding new relationships wherever they can, among friends and strangers, artists, community members, people without communities, people from near and far, just about anyone who comes through the door.

Their desire is to serve as a space of multiplicity, not defined by a singular culture or aesthetic, but as a well-spring of socially-engaged art and discourse that invites growth and transformation.
