Ignite the Possibilities: Zoom Live Studio Session
Ahoy, Arts Lovers ~
Join us online for Ignite the Possibilities!
This live broadcast studio session features lightning talks presented by Intersection for the Arts 2023 Artists in Residence (AIR)cohort. Each AIR will share highlights of their inspirations, accomplishments and challenges in activating Intersection’s space.
Emceed by Artist in Residence Joshua Walters of Mad One Media.
Intersection for the Arts is a bedrock San Francisco Bay Area arts nonprofit that’s dedicated to helping artists grow through access to vital resources. We take the stance that artists should be at the top of the systems that were originally created to support their work and we support those who take matters into their own capable hands to create their own opportunities.
