Guilford, VT - Sara Coffey, Founder/Director of Vermont Performance Lab (VPL), is proud to welcome Jennifer Carr as the new Director of Development and Andrea Livermore as a new Board Member.
Jennifer Carr started at VPL in November 2014. She joins the organization with over 15 years of leadership experience in non-profit organizations in Washington, D.C. and New England, serving as Director of Development for the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, the Healthy Building Network, Brattleboro Area Hospice, and most recently serving as the Development Operations Manager at Marlboro College.
“We are excited to have Jen join us at a time when VPL’s national reputation is rising and our audiences and local support are continuing to grow,” said Founder/Director Sara Coffey. “She knows the important role that the arts can play in the economic development of a community and we are thrilled to have her join us as we move towards VPL’s 10 year anniversary in 2016.”
Andrea Livermore was appointed to VPL’s Board in September 2014 for a three-year term. Ms. Livermore joins Board President Robert McBride (Founder/Director of the Rockingham Arts & Museum Project), Board Treasurer Konstantin von Krusenstiern (Director of Development at the Brattleboro Retreat), and Board Secretary Laura Frank (Principal/Creative Partner at Luminous FX).
Ms. Livermore has lived and worked in the Brattleboro area since the early 1980’s and brings a distinctive voice to the board: “VPL’s projects takes the arts integration into the community to the next level. VPL performances are so much more than exhibits or performances as we generally think of them. VPL performances have the ability to artistically change one’s experience of place forever.”
