Interact is finally back together – and we’re inviting you to celebrate!

On October 28th, “Surviving and Thriving” kicks off our 26th year with a joyful evening of thanks for old friendships and new beginnings!

When COVID closed our doors in March 2020, no one knew what the future would hold, but we never let that stop us! Interact’s 100+ artists with disabilities jumped right into virtual space with over fifty workshops each week that kept us connected and creating. We produced Zoomtopia, our first-ever virtual performance, with theater and visual artists exploring fantastic planets made up of color, music, and love. Our online Gallery Exhibitions hosted visitors and art buyers from as far away as Montreal and London. And even now as we come back together in person, we continue to offer creativity workshops in virtual space for new artists who live beyond the Metro Area, and artists who appreciate the chance to work in their own space.

So now it’s time to party –  Thursday, October 28th from 5:00 to 9:00 PM, under the stars, with plenty of fresh air in Nicollet Island Pavilion’s heated tent!

Interact artists will be singing some of our most-loved songs, and we’ll be featuring the work of Interact visual artists.  Blockbuster names like Kevin Kling, Robert Robertson, Ivory Doublette, and Sheridan Zuther will join us in this evening hosted by Emcee Chadwick “Niles” Phillips and the sounds of Ryan Bynum’s Good Vibes band.  Along with delicious food and cocktails, Good Vibes will rock the tent with a post-show dance party – a way for us all to be part of Interact’s spirit of radical inclusion!


Purchase tickets here and join us for an evening of joyfulness and renewal!
