Creative Leadership, Youth Development, and Arts-Based Civic Engagement

We catalyze and inspire artists and audiences through three core areas of programming:

CREATIVE LEADERSHIP

Through grants for emerging writers and spoken word poets, artist-community dialogues and the nationally recognized Creative Community Leadership Institute, Intermedia Arts provides comprehensive leadership training, resources and mentorship opportunities for artists and community development professionals working as catalysts for community change.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

From filmmaking and creative writing to graffiti art and spoken word, Intermedia Arts empowers young people with the skills and tools they need to become positive catalysts for change within their communities.

ARTS-BASED CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

Intermedia Arts supports the creation and presentation of art that sparks social change, encourages community dialogue, and inspires civic involvement through our vibrant array of gallery exhibitions, literary readings, performances, screenings, lectures, dialogues and tours.
