Kate Schramm has been appointed as the next Director of the Connecticut Cultural Heritage Arts Program (CCHAP) at the Connecticut Historical Society. Kate has a PhD in Folklore from Indiana University, and comes to the CHS from Indiana University Press where she was Assistant Acquisitions Editor. She has experience working as a folklorist at Indiana University’s Mathers Museum of World Cultures and with Indiana’s state folklore and folklife agency, Traditional Arts Indiana.

As the new CCHAP director, she will continue the program’s activities including fieldwork, documentation, and development of exhibits and events in partnership with Connecticut’s rich and diverse base of folk artists who carry on traditional art forms and cultural practices. Kate will work alongside retiring CCHAP Director Lynne Williamson for two months in order to meet artists and communities across the state and learn more about current CCHAP projects. She has great ideas for the future, too. Kate's new email is
