The Interstitial Arts Foundation, unlike many other nonprofit organizations, is entirely run by volunteers. To produce our projects, we rely on contributions from members like you, so please consider renewing or joining us today.

In 2012, with your help, the Interstitial Arts Foundation:

  • Offered salons and town halls open to all interstitial artists in New York, Boston, and Indianapolis;
  • Introduced the new work of exciting interstitial artists to others on our blog and Facebook page;
  • Helped our friends and supporters achieve their crowd-funding goals through publicity boosts and sharing of their ideas;
  • Continued sales of our groundbreaking international anthologies, Interfictions and Interfictions 2;
  • Published Interfictions Zero, a rolling online anthology of interstitial criticism on interstitial texts.

Our newest project is Interfictions: A Journal of Interstitial Arts, edited by Christopher Barzak, Meghan McCarron, and Sofia Samatar, with IAF Co-Founder Delia Sherman as Executive Editor. Launching in Spring 2013, this bi-annual, online anthology will grow to include all kinds of art—visual, performing, interactive—that transcends boundaries and refuses to be kept in a box. But to make this all work, we need you!

We look forward to meeting everyone as we expand across the country and across other boundaries in the arts. We want to invite new ideas, new perspectives, new members, and new and renewed support for the IAF. Your emails, attendance at IAF-related events, volunteering, and financial support have been vital to our success. Please take a moment now and consider making a gift to the IAF, so we can make this year as much of a success as the last– and thank you for everything you have done already!

Right now, almost everyone involved in the IAF, from event organizers to contributors to this website, participates on a volunteer basis. Many of us are working artists of one kind or another, and are able to commit to this work on a project-by-project basis between deadlines.

If you are interested in volunteering your time, expertise, contacts or general enthusiasm, please write to us at info at interstitialarts dot org. We’ll add your name to our volunteer list and contact you as relevant projects come up.

Thank you for your support of Interstitial Arts and the many people who value them!
