The Catalyst Series co-presents new work in the performing and visual arts, as well as multimedia and film presentations-in partnership with YOU: artists, groups and organizations in our community focused on art, equity, dialogue, and social change
The Catalyst Series showcases the heart of Intermedia Arts’ mission: sparking dialogue and social change with new performing arts, visual arts and film presentations. Through the Catalyst Series, Intermedia Arts provides quality exhibition, performance, and screening space to independent artists, arts organizations, youth and community groups and individuals who are dedicated to using art as a tool for social change.
How It Works:
“The Catalyst Series places a particular emphasis on increasing the visibility of and providing a platform for artists whose voices have historically been underrepresented in the arts, including (but not limited to): artists of color, LGBTQ artists, women, new and recent immigrant communities, native and Indigenous artists, low-income artists, and artists exploring non-traditional pathways to success. By providing a platform to a culturally, ethnically, socially and socio-economically diverse group of artists, this program strengthens and supports Minnesota’s creative community and provides and artistic nurturing ground for these voices to be heard.”
“Our goal is to provide local artists, arts groups, and arts organizations with the resources necessary to focus on their creative process, connect with their communities, advance their career, market their work, and develop new audiences. The Catalyst Series promotes a partnership with artists and organizations.”
