COVID Prevention Policy

Interact is back in action, with gratitude that we are surviving and thriving!

When COVID closed our doors, Interact’s 100+ artists kept the creative spirit alive with over fifty virtual art-making workshops each week.

We connected with new artists with disabilities from all over the state. We reached arts patrons as far away as Montreal and London. And we premiered Zoomtopia, our first-ever virtual theater event.

We could never have accomplished all this without your help and support!

For twenty-six years, Interact’s mission to “create art that challenges perceptions of disability” has transformed lives. We officially opened our new gallery space, we’ve launched a literary arts journal, and we’re creating an all-new theater event for 2022.

The artists and staff are so excited to be back in our space with their community of fellow creatives. Their pent up creative juices are flowing and the place is buzzing with ideas and dreams of a wonderful year to come !

Your support has made it all possible! And we’re inviting you to support us now as we create a new future.

Keep in touch through our website at www.interactcenter.org, or like our Facebook page for all the latest happenings at https://www.facebook.com/interactcenter

Your friendship and support means the world to Interact!

Thank You!  And Happy Holidays!

DONATE

In October we celebrated our 26th anniversary and it was an overwhelming success! We were all masked and vaxxed. The night highlighted Blockbuster names like Kevin Kling, Robert Robertson, Ivory Doublette, and Sheridan Zuther along with our wonderful artists. The evening was hosted by Emcee Chadwick “Niles” Phillips and the sounds of Ryan Bynum’s Good Vibes band. The Nicollet Island Pavilion was a beautiful venue, and the performances were stellar. Thank you to everyone who came!
