After an extensive search, we are pleased announce that Richard C. Robinson Jr. will be joining the WWAC staff as our new Program Manager.
Richard originally began his professional career in the communications industry but his passion for music and cultural traditions led him to pursue employment in the arts. As a result, he has been working in the field for more than 15 years, including 2.5 years at the Arts Council of Princeton. In addition to his experience in arts management, Richard is also an accomplished lead teaching artist who focuses on cultural enrichment, providing an enthusiastic and fresh perspective to the field of education.
As an educator, folklorist and musician, Richard’s work is an outgrowth of an African and Caribbean folk arts movement in Philadelphia. He has worked extensively with children throughout the tri-state area in schools and community organizations, where he passes on the traditional values of African and Caribbean Creole culture. Richard teaches young people to value commitment, discipline, respect, leadership and teamwork while also helping them to understand the importance of community support that is inherent to African and Caribbean cultures. Mr. Rich Robinson has a BA in Communications from Penn State University class of 1997.
Please join us in welcoming him to the West Windsor Arts community!
