“Through the support of Intersection, I’ve received numerous grants for my creative work and curatorial projects. These grants have also enabled me to support collaborating artists, thus spreading the support to the larger arts community. I’m grateful for Intersection in helping me make my dreams and aspirations real.”



“Arts Ed Matters has been fiscally sponsored by Intersection since 2011. We LOVE Intersection. Their fiscal sponsorship, professional support, strategic planning, and space rentals have all been instrumental in the growth and expansion of our work and outreach.
