Testimonies from the 2021 Winter/Spring Interns.

Scorpio: “As I was becoming an intern with ACW I didn’t know what to expect, but I did know I wanted to be a part of the culture that was Art to Change the World. Immediately as we started I felt welcomed and taken care of, everyone was, and is, ready to help one another strive to reach their goals. I was given the resources I needed to find work that was in the community as an artist, collaborate with different styles and concepts, and opportunities that I feel were more accessible because I had ACW to help. The ACW team was able to find me a new computer to use for projects, they introduced me to people I needed to build community and work, and gave me the info I needed to thrive.
There was a lot of hard work that we needed to get through but being able to look around and see a team at work to achieve the goal was really amazing. It shows that if we all work together and give encouragement and support we can really move mountains. Being with ACW is a great experience and helped me grow as a human.”

Abby: ACW is about real-world exposure – and benefits. I was able to have a seat at the decision-making table, make meaningful connections in the Minneapolis art scene, and was provided with copious opportunities to further my personal art career. I also grew important industry skills like grant writing, project management, and community outreach. This is definitely not a ‘pulling staples’ kind of internship! Thank you ACW!

Devin: I became a member/intern of ACW because I was a young artist looking for support, community and opportunity, ACW gave me that and more.

I felt welcomed, accepted and valued from day one. ACW helped me secure for first big photoshoot by allowing me to take professional photos of members throughout the organization. I was also able to participate in one of the biggest art fairs in the country, Art-a-Whirl, which brought me so many clients and opportunities. And lastly, through being an intern at ACW, I was able to find a studio space for my photography. Being an Intern at ACW has changed my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined. I would encourage anyone who is looking for community, acceptance, and opportunity to be a part of this organization.

Johnny: “My time working with the Art To Change The World intern program was important to my development as an artist by giving me new challenges working with a design team: coordinating, preparing and workshopping ideas in a more collaborative way than my own solo work. I also got some great exposure to the background and working lives of other artists, and got to expand my network with new, intriguing people. I’d highly recommend ACW not just as a collective for fellow artists, but as a way for artists just starting out to get the experience they need with the modern art world.”
