Friday, October 27 & Saturday, October 28 at Sanborn Mills Farm in Loudon, NH


Welcome to our 2023 Arts Partnership Conference, Woven: Gathering at the Intersections. Our theme is simple, “Gather,” but the meaning is big. Coming together in, around, and through the arts speaks to the truth that art is transcendent and takes us to joy, healing, and growth in ways that we can’t get to alone. This conference seeks to explore and demonstrate that there are many paths to creativity. Art is never just one thing; its power is in the multiplicity of connections, experiences, and outcomes.


We honor this: art does not exist in isolation. It is our lives. It is us in community.

We invite you to join us in conversations and experiences that highlight the art that comes out of gathering, collaborating, and creating side by side. This conference will offer interactive workshops, panels, participatory performances, and experiential learning. Workshops will highlight New Hampshire artists and projects happening in communities across the state, and will engage a cross sector audience that reflects all of our program areas - individual artists, Arts in Health, Traditional and Heritage Arts, Creative Communities, and Arts Education.


We are excited to announce that Vanessa Ford of Trust Transfer Project and Heather Ikemire of Lifetime Arts will be joining us as our keynote presenters! 



The conference will convene at Sanborn Mills Farm in Loudon, NH on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28, 2023Sanborn Mills is a working farm that preserves and teaches traditional farming and crafts, where people have gathered for centuries to honor the land and traditions of making. Our conference draws on this place for inspiration.

  • The conference day will run from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM, with a reception following the last plenary session.

  • We ask attendees to sign up for just one conference day.

  • Our registration fee is pay what you can, with a suggested amount of $40.

  • Contact with any questions.

NHSCA is working with Neighborhood Access to inform the ADA accessibility of the Sanborn Mills farm facilities as our conference space. Registrants can share information in the registration form for accessibility accommodations during our convening. CART captioning will be provided during the conference.



The conference will occur on two distinct days with concurrent workshop sessions in the morning and afternoon, as well as keynote presentations and plenary experiences including artist performances, dance, and collaborative projects. A detailed schedule will be available soon.


We will welcome a unique audience for each of the two days and ask that attendees register for just one day.

This is due to the fact that we want to be mindful of the capacity at Sanborn Mills and would like to have as many people as possible engage in this gathering. As space is limited, we ask you to register only if you’re committed to attending, so we have seats available for everyone who wants to be present with us.
