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.”

Meet our incredible Finance Support Assistant and Bay Area dancer, Sarah Chou! Check out an excerpt below and be sure to read the full article on our blog to learn where Sarah finds inspiration, the abundance she finds in the Bay Area art scene, and more. #ArtistsSupportingArtists #GetToKnowIntersection1.
