International Arts Relations has promoted former associate artistic director Nidia Medina to Producing Director, joining Artistic Director Lou Moreno
 
"It's a great honor to be given the opportunity to steward such a vitally important creative space through its exciting next phase of life,” Nidia Medina stated.  “I have worked in many theaters in New York City, and I don't know a single place that nurtures a creative community the way INTAR does. I'm excited to work alongside Lou, a talented staff, and a wonderful array of artists in our humble and mighty Hell's Kitchen home to continue being a think tank, a safe place, a gathering space, and a place where the world can look to see what amazing things Latine theatre artists are cooking up next.  Stay tuned, because we have plans!
 
“I am thrilled to welcome long-time INTAR artist and community member Nidia Medina into a well-deserved leadership position,” shared Artistic Director Lou Moreno. “While working as Artistic Producer on multiple productions, and then in a permanent role as Associate Artistic Director, Nidia has demonstrated  a deep commitment to providing a safe space for our intergenerational Latine community of artists and administrators. As our new Producing Director, Nidia’s vast experience and vision will no doubt be a huge asset in the coming years as we prepare to celebrate our 60th anniversary, and beyond that towards exciting new iterations of INTAR.”
 
“I share in Lou’s excitement about Nidia Medina’s elevation to Producing Director,” said Board Chair Lisa Harris. “Nidia is a change agent with a true commitment to the success of INTAR. With her experience in the industry, her history with INTAR, and her vision for the future, she will be key in developing our strategy for the years to come.”
