Who We Are
The Parachute Factory, established January 2008, is a unique collaboration between the Yale Program for Recovery and Community Health (PRCH), Community Services Network of Greater New Haven (CSN), and the Arts Council of Greater New Haven.
Through collaboration, exploration, and research we seek to:
- Foster community and individual health through the arts
- Stimulate creativity and artistic production on the grassroots level
- Expand access to the arts for people throughout our community
- Move the boundaries of our cultural dialogue into new and unexpected places
- Serve as a resource to artists exploring social themes
Wednesdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Thursdays and Fridays 12 noon to 5 p.m.; and by appointment.
