Q&A Session with TAP Intern Carter Ridl
Another intern joined us last week! The Arts Partnership team is pleased to introduce Carter Ridl, a recent high school graduate from Fargo. We did a Q&A session with Carter to get to know him a little better.
1. How did you get involved with The Arts Partnership?
I applied for an internship through Philanthropy and Youth and one of the questions was, “If you could chose a non-profit in the FM area to intern, where would it be?” The arts had always been important to me and my family, and along with that I had gone to some of The Arts Partnership’s events in the past so I thought, “Why not?” and the rest is history.
2. What exactly will you be doing as an intern for The Arts Partnership this summer?
My main project will be researching different Art Incubators around the country to try and find ways that might make our current Art Incubator (APT) more successful. Along with that I’ll being doing pretty much anything they want me to do.
3. What does art mean to you?
Art to me is the purest form of communication, because if we look back at history in almost every period there has been some form of art. Along with that, even if you don’t speak the same language as someone else, art will always be common ground to bridge the gap.
4. What is one goal you hope to accomplish in the next five years?
I hope to graduate with my degree in Finance from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.
