impactmania conceives interdisciplinary projects focused on societal themes. We have advised and realized a number of community programs for organizations. Examples:

Internship Program Creation and Development

AD&A Museum, University of California, Santa Barbara

impactmania created a new interdisciplinary internship for AD&A Museum students. Selected interns research and formulate projects in collaboration with departments on campus and organizations off campus. The resulting multi-platform projects include original web-content, publications, exhibitions, talks, and other interactive community programs. impactmania’s first collaborative project offered the AD&A Museum a 10x return on investment; broadened the audience to include global engagement; and deepened community relationships.

“I got to take part in the ‘making of’ Women of Impact. I was honored to be a part of such a big project and to have been able to play a real, tangible role in the exhibition’s development. It was an enriching, interesting, at times challenging experience, that taught me skills I had no idea I would gain when I started the internship.”

Zoe Crouzat (France)
Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland; Semester abroad at UCSB

“I was inspired by the organization’s dedication to enacting change in the world while including young people such as myself. Oftentimes, it is difficult to gain hands-on experience researching and building large, influential projects. I feel incredibly grateful that impactmania has created space for young minds to contribute our ideas and perspectives to this effort.”

Tess Reinhardt

“Working on the Women of Impact project is inspiring me to think differently about my own work and empowering me to make my own positive impact on the world! impactmania in action!”

Virginia “Ginny” Reynolds Badgett
PhD Candidate History of Art and Architecture - UCSB

“The internship has helped me form lifelong relationships and connections with people in various fields who are willing to help me pursue my career. Everyone involved in the program want nothing more then for you to grow professionally and academically. It was an amazing experience and I would do it a thousand times again. If you are given the opportunity to be part of the AD&A Museum/impactmania internship program, do not pass it up!”
