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.
In April and May 2014, CVI kicked off two great pilot projects that involved more than 600 community members, Radical Jewelry Makeover and Bash the Trash. An expanded community partnership ticket program is in the wings. Check back for additional exciting community pilots!
