Intermedia Arts of Minnesota

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


A multidisciplinary, multicultural arts center, Intermedia Arts builds understanding among people by catalyzing and inspiring artists and audiences to make changes in their lives and communities. We are a nationally recognized leader in empowering artists and community leaders to use arts-based approaches to solve community issues. From graffiti art to digital technology to performance art to spoken word, we work from the community up to unearth and enliven new and emerging artists and art forms while challenging and exploring the role of art in our lives. By stimulating civic dialogue and giving voice to the issues and experiences of underrepresented communities locally, nationally and internationally, we contribute to a stronger, healthier society.


Our department of Equity & Public Programs includes: the Catalyst Series, which presents theater, dance, film and visual arts addressing key social issues; the VERVE and Beyond the Pure grant programs for writers and spoken word poets; the Queer Voices reading series; our outdoor mural walls; mission-aligned rentals; and more. Our work serves as a platform to amplify the artwork and voice of artists working for positive social change, with a particular emphasis on artists whose voices are often under and un-represented in dominant culture.
