The Seaside Institute believes people should lead interesting, rewarding lives.
Our mission, unchanged since 1982, is to create great communities


We are a nonprofit organization based in the original New Urbanist town of Seaside, Florida. We support our community through four Mission Pillars: Engagement, the Arts, Education and Innovation. We host a variety of educational programs throughout the year, ranging from fine art and musical events, to architecture and design forums.
