Meet the Women of Impact – New Zealand
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.
