Angers joins New Hampshire’ Department of Cultural Resources
CONCORD, NH—Shelly Angers has joined New Hampshire’s Department of Cultural Resources as Communications Coordinator. In this capacity she will work to raise awareness about the wealth of cultural events and resources available throughout the state.
New Hampshire’s Department of Cultural Resources provides a support network for the state's cultural industry through programs and services designed to develop and define the unique character of New Hampshire, its history and its future.
The Council on the Arts, the State Library, the Division of Historical Resources, the Office of Film and Television, and the American Canadian French Cultural Exchange Commission are all part of the Department of Cultural Resources.
“New Hampshire’s cultural diversity is a huge draw for visitors and residents alike,” says Angers. “I’m thrilled to be working to raise our state’s profile as a center for one-of-a-kind cultural opportunities, both traditional and cutting edge.”
A graduate of the University of New Hampshire and Dartmouth College, Angers has spent most of her profession life in New Hampshire. Starting at New Hampshire Public Television as a production assistant, she went on to produce a nationally-broadcast computer television show based in Newport. She then spent many years teaching for the College for Lifelong Learning (now Granite State College) at locations across the state, and her experience in public relations and marketing ranges from dot.com work in Seattle to book publishing in Vermont to raising awareness of challenges and opportunities facing the four-state Northern Forest region.
“Shelly dedication to increasing New Hampshire’s cultural profile is phenomenal, and her understanding of ways to get the word out about the myriad of resources here will make the state an even more attractive place for residents and visitors alike,” says Department of Cultural Resources Commissioner Van McLeod.
From the covered bridges and traditional music of our past to the avant garde performances and technological resources of today and tomorrow, New Hampshire’s culture is as varied as the geography and people of the state. This strong cultural base—which truly has something for everyone—attracts businesses looking for engaged workforces, provides outstanding educational opportunities and creates communities worth living in.
