What are the details on contract IxD/UX work? (does it even exist)

While I was at an internship over the summer, a client recommended that I start seeking contract work while I finish up my MFA. (as opposed to my previous plan of taking a bunch of internships to learn different skills.. I'm told more than one internship can make it look like you didn't learn anything or your skills aren't up to par for a real position)

Are there ways we can help/engage our local community with our design skills?

So I was just looking through my twitter feed and saw a public collaboration from a couple of local visual artists, one of which I know from his academic work, and I was thinking how great it is that he can share the fruit of his work with the community. 

It got me wondering if there is anything that we as UX or Interaction Designers can do in the same way. It's obvious that most of what we do is not consumable in such a passive way as purely visual arts, but surely there is something we can do.

NYU or General Assembly class/program help

Hello everyone,

I'm a designer/newbie, I've been taking courses here and there and feeling a little fragmented, in many areas but we'll just stick to UX here.
So I'm thinking of entering either the User Experience Certificate program at NYU or the 12 week design course offered at General Assembly. Anyone have any experience with the quality of their curriculum or their instructors? How about job placement program? Any suggestion would help I woud like some input before plopping down the ransom they demand. Or could these classes be duplicated?
