Alternative Collaborations and Kid’s Play NOLA would like to officially welcome Anne Archer as Director of Development. Anne has actually been volunteering her services since her move to NYC in 2008. Together, Anne and I have been hammering away at applying for performance residencies and art education grants. If you have been keeping up with my blog, I’ve mentioned her a few times.
This is a big step for Kid’s Play NOLA as I consider Anne to be my first hire! Even though she is still currently volunteering, in the future I hope to start her off with a monthly stipend. She has done such a wonderful job and I am so grateful our friendship and interests have developed. Anne has a deep passion for the arts and believes in the importance of arts education to our youth. We also have a shared love of New Orleans and good food!
Anne has helped me put my enthusiasm for the arts into words. As a dancer, or any other artist, this task is often the hardest. I express my emotions and thoughts through movement, I even talk with many hand gestures. Having someone by my side who truly believes in my goal has helped Alt C and Kid’s Play move forward. I cannot tell you how excited I am that Anne has committed to Kid’s Play NOLA and our efforts to re-art New Orleans.
