PR/Marketing Internship

Interact Center for the Visual and Performing Arts



 

Organization Summary:

Since 1996, Interact’s mission to create art that challenges perceptions of disability have redefined who is included in creating the artistic vocabulary. Our actors and visual artists with disabilities create all original work, sustain rigorous professional standards while exploring ideas through the lens of the entire spectrum of disability labels. Our uncompromising vision of radical inclusion dissolves concepts of who “can” or “cannot,” blending the talents and viewpoints of artists with and without disabilities, and artists from mainstream and marginalized communities.
