The Eastern Connecticut Center for History, Art, and Performance, Inc. (EC-CHAP for short) is an independent membership-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization representing an important cultural resource serving communities and visitors to Eastern Connecticut and beyond. The Center's focus is to bring a heightened awareness to the significance of local history and historic preservation; provide an appreciation for the visual arts through creation and display; and offer performance events and opportunities for creative expression in music, film, dance, literature, and theater.
The EC-CHAP currently operates the Gardiner Hall Jr. Museum and hosts an assortment of performances and events at The Packing House, both located at The Mill Works in Willington, CT. Plans are under review to develop a formal gallery space where the works of local, regional, and nationally known artists can be displayed. A variety of creative programs, workshops, classes, and artist in residence opportunities are also being planned as part of a unique educational exchange.
We have scheduled several "Informational Exchange Meetings" to review our mission, discuss membership opportunities, and review plans for programming and support. We are very interested in obtaining your input and feedback with respect to how we can best meet your interests and needs as a cultural organization.
