The Arts Alliance is grateful for the operating support provided by grants from the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, NHCF

the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts

and the National Endowment for the Arts.

We are once again presenting a series of great statewide summer professional development workshops focused on reaching all learners through the arts. They're designed for preK-12 classroom and arts educators, SPED teachers and paraeducators, as well as administrators, teaching artists and all those interested in arts integration and in working with students who face physical, cognitive and social-emotional learning challenges. The workshops, offered under a contract with the John F. Kennedy Center in D.C., and presented in partnership with VSA New Hampshire, are based on the principles of Universal Design for Learning. They feature expert presenters from across New England. Learn more here and download a full list here.

Los Angeles-based social practice artist Lorri Deyer spent four weeks with us this summer, creating her "Field Guide to the Unnoticed: Walks through the WMNF." The public is invited to contribute their own observations on her residency website. Berlin-born sculptor and industrial designer Quinn Morrisette is now in residence and has begun his large-scale project.
Learn more about Lorri here, Quinn here.

The second year of our Experience/Arts partnership with Grafton County Senior Citizens, funded by Aroha Philanthropies and the Couch Family Foundation, is now under way. Registration is now open for our fall series: ukulele classes in Haverhill and Lebanon, story telling in Plymouth and creative movement in Littleton. Read more and register for fall classes here.

Lorraine Chapman, one of New England’s most respected choreographers, will be working with dancers – and non-dancers – on contemporary dance and interdisciplinary movement in a multi-part residency that continues throughout the spring. Lorraine will work solo several days and will also be joined by her company for a series of community residency days, offering classes for dancers, theater artists and community members around the region, including ballet, modern and Grotowski-based movement awareness and improv sessions.
