CMSC Member Highlight: Westville Village’s Virtual Artwalk 2020
A Fundraising & Community-Building Success

When Westville’s award-winning Artwalk event – which typically draws thousands of visitors to the community-oriented arts district in New Haven each Mother’s Day weekend – was faced with cancellation due to the pandemic, the Westville community came together to host a Virtual Artwalk full of events & entertainment.

WVRA Executive Director Lizzy Donius explains how they were able to quickly transition to an online platform featuring 11 hours of programming over two days, while managing to maintain their sponsors and surpass their fundraising goals. Read how they did it.
