Podcast Available for September Spotlight: “The Quick Center’s Peter Van Heerden”

The podcast is now available for our September SPOTLIGHT ON ARTS & CULTURE program. Catch our hour-long interview with Peter van Heerden, Executive Director of Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts, here at bit.ly/SpotlightQuick. Peter, approaching his fifth anniversary leading the region’s flagship performing arts center, introduces himself and the relevance of his own performance background in developing a dynamic and catalytic  center that is continually shaking things up. From multi-level and multi-disciplinary engagement with students, faculty and departments at the University, to exciting programs working with local schoolchildren in their classrooms and in workshops at the Quick, Peter explains how the arts have a responsibility to unsettle and change the way we think.
