On Thursday Jan. 17, the Cultural Alliance convened 17 historical societies from across Fairfield County. Co-organized with Westport and New Canaan Historical Societies, the meeting was hosted by the Westport Historical Society. 26 people participated in an effort to create ties among and between societies, to discover and share the successes and challenges facing the societies and to begin to plan for ways these groups can work together.  This meeting follows a convening of arts councils in December, where 9 arts councils met together to similarly share their successes and challenges.

Connect-Us  is a Bridgeport-based, Westport-supported organization offering after-school opportunities for youngsters in need. It was founded in 2017 by now executive director Pam Lewis. In an article in Westport's 06680 blog, Lewis is quoted as saying "There’s a state of emergency in Bridgeport. The average 9th grader reads at a 4th-grade level. But people do understand that the kids need support, in school and after school. This really is Westport and Bridgeport — caring adults and young people — coming together and harnessing our human capital to impact and support entire communities." Connect-Us programs are designed to complement formal education with after-school growth opportunities that expand the vistas of youth living in Bridgeport. Currently, there are three Connect-Us programs: The Youth Leadership Team, whose members learn public speaking, community organizing, and related skills; C-U Onstage is a place where young people meet, create, produce performances, and learn to work as an ensemble; and Connect-Us Academy, a 14-week series of workshops at companies throughout Fairfield County, where professional mentors help teenagers learn about finance, law, advertising, retail, health and education administration. Graduates of the program are placed in paid summer internships. The programs accept all students, irrespective of their academic accomplishments and capabilities, and provide a variety of enrichment experiences. Young people’s new experiences with each other and with adult volunteers and business professionals create a new kind of community and bring about a desire to learn and grow in everyone involved. See the Connect-Us website,  Facebook and Instagram pages.

Newton Roux Gallery opened this last May, 2018, on the second level of the new Bedford Square development in downtown Westport. The gallery is the dream project of Ridgefield residents Amy Pal and her husband, Kevin Manley. The space is a sleek, oversized corridor leading to Whip Salon -- an unexpected place for art, devoid of any intimidation factor and accessible to all. The couple exhibit primary market work of emerging realist and abstract painters and are planning eight exhibitions a year. Their chief goals with Newton Roux are to find and promote talented emerging artists, and to exhibit in unusual, accessible, underutilized spaces with natural foot traffic. They also work to create synergies between the gallery and the surrounding merchant community, to keep overhead (and commission) low for artists, and to make the buying process transparent and easy for collectors. Amy, who also owns Whip Salon, comments that she is passionate about contemporary art and saw an opportunity here to work on a project she’d been thinking about for the past several years: “We’re putting art into a place where people already go naturally. Not only does that delight visitors with an unexpected surprise, it allows them to view, enjoy, and potentially purchase, art at their own pace, with no pressure,” she said.

Written out Loud Storytelling School was founded by Joshua Shelov, with a mission to tell stories that matter. The school is led by Joshua, an Emmy-winning screenwriter and filmmaker who has made multiple films in Hollywood and for every major broadcast network and streaming service, and his wife Jennifer Shelov, a teacher and educator in both public and private schools for over 25 years. They founded the school out of a conviction that, as they put it: we now live in a world that needs stories that matter more than ever, stories that force us to confront the darkening world we live in. Believing that story formats are changing rapidly but story form is not, they teach that the heart of every great story is its campfire story. Written Out Loud is like a School of Rock for movie and TV fans, teaching young people and adults alike how their favorite movies and TV shows work. Then, based on those age-old storytelling principles, they help their students create original stories of their own. The Shelovs believe that storytelling is a skill that kids will use for the rest of their lives, whether they become writers, doctors, firemen, or parents. Telling a strong, powerful story isn't easy. Good storytellers make a deep and lasting impression wherever they go in life. Workshops are held in Bridgeport for young storytellers (ages 10-17) Sunday afternoons, starting Jan. 27, and for adult storytellers (17 and up) Tuesday nights, from Jan. 29.

The Bruce Museum is offering free admission to all furloughed federal workers and their families throughout the remainder of the partial federal government shutdown. Said Suzanne Lio, Managing Director: "The Bruce Museum is committed to being an inclusive, welcoming place of cultural engagement and community fellowship.

Fairfield University Art Museum has a new executive director. We are thrilled to report that Carey Mack Weber, formerly Assistant Director, was appointed to this new position, effective Jan. 2, 2019. Carey was integral to the founding of the Bellarmine Museum of Art, where she assisted Jill Deupi, PhD, the founding director, in developing the museum’s first three years of exhibitions and programming, as well as setting up the collections management system. Additionally, she served as interim director after Dr. Deupi’s departure, prior to the arrival of Linda Wolk-Simon, PhD. Carey also serves as President of the Connecticut Art Trail, a partnership of 21 world-class museums and historic sites, created to promote Connecticut’s rich cultural assets. More...
On Jan. 10, Lounsbury House, National Historic Site in Ridgefield, built in 1896 by former Governor Lounsbury, marked the 178th birthday for Connecticut’s 53rd Governor and the man after whom Lounsbury House is named. Born in 1841, Phineas Lounsbury grew up on a Ridgefield farm still operating today as The Hickories.  He was a successful banker and lifelong opponent of ‘strong drink,’ so it’s likely that his birthday celebrations were centered on family, cake and ‘two-step dancing,’ of which he was said to be a fan!
The Mighty Quinn Foundation, in mourning with the rest of the Stratford cultural community for the loss by fire this week of the American Festival Shakespeare Theatre, issued a statement clarifying that it, its buildings, resources, and its Shakespeare Academy @ Stratford will not be directly affected by this tragic loss.

The Mighty Quinn, reliant on donations for its continuation is contemplating a celebration of the life and history of the American Shakespeare Festival Theatre. Respond here if you would like to participate and assist in planning such an event.
Each summer The New Paradigm Theatre Company partners with another non-profit that reflects the theme of its summer production to raise money and awareness for issues and organizations surrounding the community. For West Side Story, NPT and the Norwalk Symphony are proud to partner with Building One Community, B1C. The Center for Immigrant Opportunity (B1C) is a non-profit organization that educates, employs, empowers, and engages immigrants and the community. “As a center for immigrant opportunities, the themes presented in West Side Story resonate with our mission to support the most vulnerable. Although our clients are immigrants from over 87 countries, the majority of our clients are of Hispanic origin who are trying to find solace for themselves, friends and family members, while being persecuted and targeted by the negative rhetoric surrounding immigration in our current political climate” says Michelle Saldivar, Special Project Advisor for B1C.  As partnerships between the non-profit and for-profit world continue to form in order to tackle social challenges from all sides, this type of collective impact production has become increasingly relevant and a vital component of a community.

Then-Governor-elect Ned Lamont and Lt. Governor-elect Susan Bysiewicz held a policy summit in November 2018, where they announced the creation of 15 transition committees on topics encompassing critical state issues. The committees were tasked with developing policy recommendations on their respective topics that the incoming administration could consider immediately upon taking office. The Arts, Culture and Tourism (ACT) Committee recently released its report-out, or "Memo,"  and set of recommendations, with supporting documentation. The committee proposed: a new investment strategy, accountability structure and innovative thinking to demonstrate ACT as a solution to stimulating economic growth, boosting tourism and making neighborhoods and cities more vibrant and equitable. Funding for ACT should be focused on statewide tourism marketing, increased tax revenue, new jobs, and operating support for arts and cultural organizations. Seven goals, "achievable  within the first 100 days," included:
● Reallocate the lodging tax revenue to Tourism Fund from 10% to 25+% annually; allocate 40% for arts/culture and 60% for tourism annually; change the fund's name to “Arts, Culture and Tourism Fund.”
● Create a Cultural Facilities Fund to create construction jobs; support world-class arts and cultural facilities; increase tourism; expand access and education in the arts, humanities, and sciences; and improve the quality of life in cities and towns.
● Spur private sector investment and public/private partnerships to "act globally, invest locally".
● Promote CT with immediate changes to market and promote CT’s arts, cultural and tourism assets; open the welcome centers to declare CT is open for business.
● Provide, Promote and Incentivize Access to all arts, cultural and tourism assets to improve quality of life and educational opportunities for all.
● Funding Distribution: Form a task force to re-examine the current funding system, so it maximizes the impact of state funds in support of job creation, economic growth and community vitality.
● Establish a New Regional Tourism Marketing Model to efficiently and effectively market Connecticut’s resources that is relevant, inclusive, and more meaningful for the diverse entities across CT.
