Interact Center for the Arts Demonstrates Social Value Using Research
As an organization run by professional, practicing artists, one of Interact Center for the Visual and Performing Arts' strengths is the creativity they bring to addressing challenges. For more than 25 years, Interact has been creating art that challenges perceptions of disability. Artistic and Executive Director Jeanne Calvit has grown the organization to a 40-member Theater Ensemble creating and presenting original works, an 80-member Visual Arts Studio showing original pieces throughout the region and sold around the world, and has produced education initiatives reaching students and adults. Interact’s vision of radical inclusion blends artists with and without disabilities across age, race, and cultural backgrounds.
