New Hampshire, 1/31/2023. Kimball Jenkins, a community cultural center located in Concord, NH, and Queerlective, a statewide group based in Manchester, have combined forces with a fiscal sponsorship. This will allow Queerlective to grow its programs and provide more support to meet the diverse creative community’s needs.
The two organizations have aligned missions working to create inclusive and safe spaces where the arts can be used for personal and community growth.
