Listings Project, a free weekly compilation of vetted real estate listings and other opportunities geared towards artists and creatives, is rooted in collective self-care and community building.
Listings Project began with my own search for an apartment 17 years ago.

As Listings Project has grown, my team and I are continually mindful of our unusual role at the intersection of community, technology, real estate and art. We continue to vet each listing, speaking directly with every poster, and have connected countless people with apartments, roommates, art studios, exhibition opportunities and jobs — not to mention friends, soul mates, creative collaborators, patrons and backup singers.
