March kicks off The Confluence Project
GUILFORD, BRATTLEBORO AND MARLBORO — Vermont Performance Lab (VPL) and Windham Regional Commission (WRC) are teaming up to launch The Confluence Project, a new collaborative effort for bringing arts, youth, community groups, and educational institutions to the civic dialogue table to help create a deeper engagement around water and watersheds.
The Confluence Project links Vermont Performance Lab's artist residency program with the community development work of the Windham Regional Commission. Through public programs and integrated art-science residencies, The Confluence Project is supporting our local schools build an understanding of our local watersheds, and fosters a new model for civic engagement and collaboration around water.
Vermont Performance Lab and the Windham Regional Commission are pleased to collaborate with many community partners to make these programs possible including: the Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center, Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, Connecticut River Conservancy, Green River Watershed Alliance, Marlboro College and the River Gallery School and three Windham County Schools: the Guilford Central School, Hilltop Montessori School and the Marlboro Elementary School.
