Event Description

UArts Chapel Haven CT will celebrate a grand opening of its pioneering artisan workshop and training program Tuesday, January 20, 2015, 5-7 p.m. at Chapel Haven’s new satellite program,  335 Washington Street, North Haven.

 

This event is free, open to the public and press coverage is invited. People can view the works of Chapel Haven artists David Hogin and Vito Bonnano, meet the artists enrolled in the Uarts program, buy handmade products and enjoy refreshments.

 

Uarts is a unique artisan studio program launched in partnership with Chapel Haven and funded by a grant from the Connecticut Office of the Arts/DECD. This is the first program of its kind to receive a pilot arts grant targeted to adults with disabilities from the State of Connecticut and already, Chapel Haven is off to a great start.

 

In just 90 days, Chapel Haven clients have produced artisan products that were showcased and received a popular reception at two holiday markets, in Hartford and at Whitney Center in Hamden.  Workshop participants, guided by professional artists, produced hand painted silk scarves, textile products, unique bags and cards daily during the pilot phase.  In the coming months many new products will be designed and produced. The studio will open to the public for classes and arts learning opportunities.

 

Chapel Haven is an award winning an award-winning, nationally accredited school and transition program serving 250-plus adults with a variety of abilities and needs.

 

“I am so proud of all that has been accomplished so quickly by our burgeoning artists,” said Chapel Haven President Michael Storz. “I encourage everyone to attend the open house, shop for some unique gifts and show support for this unique employment path for our individuals.”

 

The goal of this program is to provide training, opportunities, access and engagement and resources for populations who have challenges connecting to creativity, accessing studio space, materials and mentorship in the pursuit of creative careers.

 

The program also provides training for established CT artists who are interested in becoming teachers and studio managers.

 

Uarts Chapel Haven and the Office of the Arts plan to produce a conference this spring exploring creative work force development ,access and engagement and the role the arts can play in providing alternative routes to work for those who wish to explore creative career options.

The Anatomy of an Inclusive—and Successful—Community Partnership: Q&A with Thomas Wyatt

Thomas Wyatt, a researcher, urban planner and 2019 Rubinger Fellow from Flint, Michigan, discusses what it takes to forge cross-sector partnerships that can achieve authentic community change. A prime example: Flint’s University Avenue Corridor Coalition brought residents and institutions together to reduce a neighborhood’s entrenched blight and crime when nothing else could.

What Happens When Workforce Development Meets Industrial District Revitalization

A new white paper from LISC’s Research and Evaluation team shows how revitalizing industrial districts can have an extraordinary impact in creating good jobs, activating neighborhoods and sparking local economies. Case in point: New York’s Brooklyn Navy Yard, an inspiring model for disinvested districts across the country.

“I Believe in the Power of Storytelling.” A Q&A with LISC’s Tope Folarin, Whose Novel Debuts this Week

“She told me I could serve her in heaven.” From that powerful opening line in A Particular Kind of Black Man, award-winning author Tope Folarin leads readers through an exploration of identity as seen through the eyes of a first-generation Nigerian-American. Folarin, whose “day job” is as LISC’s vice president of content and storytelling, says the story is relevant not just because of its connection to immigration and race, but because it looks at the way people struggle to build their own personal narratives…to live into their own stories. On the eve of his book tour, he talked about how his work as a novelist intersects with his work at LISC.
