What happens when a rock star continues to volunteer at every project and talk you produce? You convince her to be on the Board! We’re excited to announce the latest addition to the N+T Board of Directors: the Boston-based producer, director, innovator, (and our most faithful volunteer), Alberta Chu.
In her work and life, Alberta Chu consistently makes provocative connections between art, science, technology, innovation, and culture. She is the Co-Founder of Facetopo, a global big data project about faces. Alberta has produced and directed popular science programming for television as well as art and science documentaries such as the award-winning Electrum: Science as Art.
Alberta is an active supporter of the arts in the greater Boston area as an art collector and producer of art experiences. She was an Executive Director of the Nasty Women Boston Art show in September 2017 that raised over $20K for charity. We're thrilled to welcome Alberta to the Board!
As we welcome Alberta to the board, we’re also saying goodbye – and thank you! – to long-serving N+T board member Matthew Hinçman. Matthew is stepping down after three years of serving as the Treasurer of the N+T board. As a board member, Matthew successfully steered our transition from UrbanArts to Now + There (’14-’17).
Matthew was an integral force in shaping the vision of N+T, and we wish him all the best as he prepares to execute the City’s first percent for public art project for the recently renovated Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library. Thank you, Matthew!
