2023 New Hampshire Benefit

May 6, 2023

We are eager to gather in celebration with our New England supporters at the 2023 MacDowell New Hampshire Benefit for a special evening of performances, presentations, and dinner from the MacDowell kitchen. This year, the New Hampshire Benefit returns to Bond Hall, the heart of the MacDowell campus, where artists-in-residence dine and gather.

We invite you to join us on Saturday, May 6 at 5:30 p.m. for a cocktail reception in the James Baldwin Library, where guests will have the chance to meet Chiwoniso Kaitano, the new Executive Director of MacDowell. Then, dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. in Bond Hall, followed by presentations from MacDowell Fellows, including a musical performance from composer Rodrigo Martinez Torres (19), speeches, and more! Additional program details to follow.

For individual and business sponsorship opportunities, please contact events@macdowell.org or (410) 790-2140.
