and the National Endowment for the Arts.



We are thrilled that our Experience/Arts partnership with Grafton County Senior Citizens Council has been awarded a second year of funding from Aroha Philanthropies and the Couch Family Foundation. Beginning next month we’ll be offering another series of eight arts classes for adults ages 55 and older – in Plymouth, Haverhill, Lebanon and Littleton. We’ll be starting off mid-May with “Working with Clay” at the Littleton Studio School and “Photographing Nature” at the Horse Meadow Senior Center. If you are a potential participant, please contact us at to make sure you are put on the list to hear what classes have been scheduled. Read more about Experience/Arts here.


May 20-22, internationally acclaimed Syrian clarinetist/composer Kinan Azmeh and Sri Lankan-born pianist/composer Dinuk Wijeratne share their stirring "Art of the Duo" programs across northern New Hampshire. These world-class artists fuse elements of Arabic and south-east Asian vocabulary with classical and jazz music idioms to create a new sonic world that the legendary Marcel Khalife called "wings of breath." Their residency will also address issues from collaboration and creativity to cultural awareness in talks, lecture-demonstrations and community gatherings. Contact us if you’d like to be part of this amazing residency! Read more 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.
