COMMUNITY VENTURE INITIATIVE

The Hop’s new Community Venture Initiative (CVI) aims to increase the Upper Valley community’s engagement and access to Hop programming. CVI builds on the Hop’s commitment, over its 50-year history, to community-oriented programs involving a strong network of local organizational partners, as well as on ideas generated by the Hop’s Class Divide Project, a three-year initiative that examined socio-economic class via the arts.
 
The project is funded by Jane’s Trust, as well as support from Jane and Peter McLaughlin, The Jack & Dorothy Byrne Foundation, Neda Nobari Foundation, Nini and Rob Meyer, Jenny and Stan Williams and Norwich Partners.
 
Radical Jewelry Makeover is one of CVI’s two introductory public art projects that broadly involve the community. The second, Bash the Trash, is being planned for this spring. This project will engage people in towns throughout the Upper Valley to create and perform on instruments made from materials brought to town recycling centers.
