I’m thrilled to have been asked to join the board of the formidable, cool, and formidably cool local arts service organization, Arts Alive!! (This sentence has two exclamation points because one belongs to the organization’s name, and one belongs to my enthusiasm for the organization.) I’ll be serving at least through 2022.
Arts Alive! is the major connector between artists, arts nonprofits, creative businesses, and the broader community in the Monadnock Region. It’s a major quality-of-life booster, and the locals are super lucky it’s here.
I didn’t know Keene or the Monadnock Region existed until I met Jess Gelter, the AA! ED, at an arts convening in Plymouth, NH in 2018 or so. After hearing her talk about what she and the organization were up to in Keene, I started looking into it, which eventually prompted a move here. So a huge thank you to Jess, because I’m loving my new home, pandemic notwithstanding.
I’m super honored and thrilled to be working with the group of dynamic, intelligent and interesting people that sit on the board, and am looking forward to lending a helping hand where I can!
If you’re reading this and you’re in the Monadnock Region, here are a few ways you can get involved:
- Head on over and take the quick and thought-provoking Arts & Loneliness study.
- Check out the Artist to Artist lineup.
- Sign up for the Discover Monadnock newsletter. (This is absolutely the best way to find out what fun things, both virtual and IRL, are happening in the area.)
