Interact Center for the Visual and Performing Arts is celebrating its 20th anniversary of challenging perceptions of disability through art and performance. Learn more about its location and accessibility here.
The center promotes multi-cultural, inter-generational diversity through its 125+ artists creating in both theater and studio arts.
"When I started Interact back in 1996 I knew that art making here would transform our artists' lives. What I didn't realize then that there would be a huge ripple effect - the families, the staff and all of the community that experienced the work of our artists would shift their perceptions of disability. They would see human potential and creativity. That ripple effect would extend way beyond our own community and beyond as our artists became leaders and traveled the world. The initial vision has grown so much - the power that creativity can bring to an individual and the human experience cannot be measured."
- Jeanne Calvit, Founder and Director of Interact Center for the Visual and Performing Arts
