Kesey Farm Project
The Kesey Farm Project is located on the historic sixty-four acre Kesey Farm in Pleasant Hill, Oregon. We are dedicated to supporting artists and fostering a cross-disciplinary, creative community by developing projects that promote art and collaboration. Our mission is to preserve the Farm’s role as an accessible and idyllic space for artists to come together, make work, experiment, and share peaceful times. The Kesey Farm Project aims to offer imaginative, diverse, and inclusive programming.
The Kesey Farm Project is a program of the Charitable Partnership Fund, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Creativity and Agriculture
1) Organize new and reinforce existing programming on-site including:
a) Stabilizing and making safe the existing structures;
b) Support Kesey Farm Project programs and events including the summer artist-in-residence currently in its third year (one week workshops and five week residency programs);
c) Celebrate the spirit of creative interaction between artists, supporters and the local community and beyond.
2) Create a bridge between the physical space of the farm and the non-physical space of the Kesey Farm Project onsite and offsite.
3) Protect the archives of the Ken Kesey and the Kesey Farm Project collection as a place for these items to be shared and celebrated.
