Episode: Spotlight on Arts & Culture: The Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County

Spotlight On Arts & Culture | September 9, 2019 | The Quick Center’s Peter van Heerden

Hosted by David Green of The Cultural Alliance Of Fairfield County.

Our September 2019 conversation was with Peter van Heerden, Executive Director of Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

Peter van Heerden is approaching his fifth anniversary leading the region’s flagship performing arts center. Peter has brought an unprecedented international flair and perspective to this institution. A South African performance artist, with a Master’s in Performing Arts from the University of Cape Town, he moved with his wife to Westport, where he then ran the Westport Arts Center for 4 years. What difference has his international perspective brought to the arts of Fairfield County? How is the Quick’s intensifying program impacting the community and our issues - from gun violence to the health and wellbeing of our veterans, to an awareness of the wealth disparity among our population?
