Arts & Society (a non-profit, tax exempt organization) has provided concerts, concert dramas and literary events since 1979. Many living composers, artists, choreographers and writers and hundreds of different performers have been featured. One of our goals is to provide a vehicle for emerging talent. Many of these programs have been rebroadcast on WBUR and WCRB. The Bloomsday celebration (the oldest continuous public celebration of the life and works of James Joyce in the U. S. and perhaps anywhere) has been rebroadcast on Cable T.V. in Cambridge and on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. For further information contact founder and artistic director John Crelan at P.O. Box 4485, Vineyard Haven Ma. 02568, (508) 696-0539; [email protected] or visit us on the web at www.artsandsociety.org.
John Crelan, founder and director of Arts & Society, was born in Hartford, Conn. He received his M.A. in history from Trinity College and his B.A. from the University of Hartford, where he also taught world and Russian and Soviet history. He has also taught English and creative writing at Emerson College and Suffolk U. He has worked and/or studied with Joseph Papp, Lee Grant and Philip Burton. His satires, poetry and book reviews have appeared on the op-ed pages of several newspapers, including the Boston Herald, the Chicago Tribune, the Cambridge Chronicle, the Chronicle of Orleans County, Vermont, the Record of Sherbrooke, Quebec and the Vineyard Gazette. His one act plays The Screwdriver and Vain were recently performed via the Dear Conjunction theatre in Paris.
