To strengthen and energize our community, to deepen the cultural and artistic growth of youth, to offer opportunities for people to come together in celebration of the arts, to inspire and cultivate artistic expression and education in the performing and visual arts for people of all ages and incomes.
Chandler's Board of Directors:
I support Chandler because it was the first place where I really saw my kids fall in love with Theater and Music! My experience with the youth programs has shown me that it is a very important opportunity to be a part of something exciting in just the right way for each individual. This is true for adults as well as youth. Chandler gave me the chance to challenge myself to put it all out there on stage and it was a profound experience! Having an arts facility like this one in our small town is an amazing advantage to living here!
I believe in Chandler Center for the Arts because talent has to be born, realized, nurtured and inspired. Talent is everywhere. Places like Chandler are where the next generation of talent can develop and where we can gather as a community to experience the Arts.
I support Chandler because it reaches out to all sorts of people. For example, it's the only place in the state that gives LGBTQ people a voice on its stage every year; and this past summer, it offered $5 tickets to SNAP/3 Squares VT participants. The arts are for everyone, and Chandler tries to make that a reality in our community and region.
