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. History Museum, Artist in Residence (AIR) Program, and hosts an assortment of performances and events at The Packing House, all located at The Mill Works, an historic landmark located in Willington, CT.
EC-CHAP has recently launched the “Dye & Bleach House Community Gallery” - a gallery space where the works of local and regional artists can be displayed and viewed by the public at no cost. A variety of creative programs, workshops, classes, are also being planned as part of a unique educational exchange. Visit www.ec-chap.org for more information.
We have scheduled monthly "Information Exchange Meetings" to review our mission, discuss membership benefits, volunteer opportunities, and review program offerings. 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. These meetings are free to attend.
This meeting will be held in The Packing House at The Mill Works, 156 River Road, Willington, CT. Refreshments provided.
