So… are you a radical dreamer? Are you passionate about art, activism, social justice, + community building? Do you want hands-on experience with large-scale exhibition production and community engagement initiatives? Do you want to creatively speak truth to power and support others to do so? Do you want “backstage” access to a variety of dynamic cultural events?
INTO ACTION is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to assist in the following capacities:
Special Projects Fabrication
Into Action will mount several large-scale installations and we are calling on artists and students to help to make them. For the creatively skilled, this is a unique opportunity to work shoulder-to-shoulder with world-renowned artists in the creation of museum quality sculpture and ask today’s most important questions. Why can’t we move forward on solving gun violence? Does America’s war machine need children to keep itself alive? Why don’t our representatives in DC listen to U.S. citizens? How do we solve our city’s homelessness problem? We need culture to change culture and Into Action’s Special Projects are driving the shift. We need You. Enlist in IA Special Forces today!
