Intersection Arts

Intersection is a pioneering arts and community development organization that brings people together across boundaries to instigate break-through change. Intersection’s programs emphasize relationships, collaboration, and process. We work with hundreds of artists through residencies, commissions, fellowships, performances, exhibitions, workshops and public art projects. We emphasize the creative process, provide significant research and development support, build strong partnerships, and offer robust community engagement activities to provide artists with room to collaborate across silos, explore and push boundaries. Organizationally, Intersection emphasizes creative risk-taking and radical collaboration. Annually, we work with more than 50 community partners across sector and field. Intersection is currently a lead collaborator on The 5M Project. Intersection, The 5M Project, and PolicyLink are co-creating 5M PlaceWorks – a pioneering new entity that fuses creative placemaking and economic development practice with the goal of a new model for equitable urban development.
