The Chautauqua Connections Program seeks to enhance the student or early-career artist support system by linking them with a CHQ individual or family. The experience is different for every student or early-career artist and CHQ connection, but connections may provide occasional invitations to meals, use of a washing machine, a place to hang out, and your own special fan at performances.
Students or early-career artists report the experience as “fabulous” and “a wonderful way to be a part of the community at CHQ.”
Connections by Program
The Chautauqua Connections program in Dance creates connections with Festival and Apprentice dancers. Dancers (usually in pairs) are connected with CHQ Connections who provide non-financial support along with a home-cooked meal, a batch of cookies, a listening ear and having a “special fan” at performances. Information will be sent to enrolled students in the Spring. If you are interested, please contact Karen Goodell at email@example.com or 917-670-1900 for more information.
