Listings Project is free weekly compilation of vetted real estate, job, and other opportunity listings geared towards artists and creatives. We believe in creating opportunities for all people to have equitable access to job and housing opportunities. We are committed to building an anti-oppressive community.
Since we were founded in 2003 by artist Stephanie Diamond, we have connected thousands of people with apartments, roommates, art studios, jobs and opportunities. We have a vibrant and engaged community in 43 U.S. states and over 200 countries, including Los Angeles, New York, the Bay Area, Portland, Austin, Marfa, London, Paris and Costa Rica.
One of the things that makes Listings Project different from every other real estate or job listing site is how carefully we vet our listings. We review listings to make sure they meet our standards for equity and inclusion and we check for discriminatory or biased language. Our goal with vetting is to make sure that every listing you see is thoughtful, inclusive and personal.
All listers and subscribers to commit our community agreements and equity and inclusion statement to ensure every person actively contributes to maintaining our respectful, life-affirming, inclusive and anti-oppressive environment. The agreements uphold the foundation of our work as a force of communal good and collective care in real estate and job listings.
