Projects for a New Millennium, otherwise known as Projects2k or P2k, is a 501-c-3 collaborative that was formed in 1993 to created multimedia events and educational programs that foster the fusing of art, science and environmental awareness as a means of discovery and appreciation of the natural world. Projects2k collaborators continue to aspire to create programming illustrating a world-view that celebrates our differences while recognizing the importance of our timeless common goals of peace and freedom in an environmentally sound world.
From 1995 to 2012 we have produced over 35 programs. Projects for a New Millennium was established in 1993 by Joy Wulke, environmental artist, as a non-profit corporation to create collaborative events that foster the fusing of art, science, and ecological concerns as a means of discovery, appreciation, and stewardship of the natural world. Projects for a New Millennium and its collaborators continue to aspire to extend presentations and educational programming illustrating a useful and wondrous philosophy of life, a worldview that celebrates our differences while recognizing the importance of our timeless common goals of peace and freedom in an environmentally sound world. P2k is renowned for collaborating across multiple disciplines. We work on teams with artists, students, educators, scientists, environmentalists, activists, organizers, and all interested individuals. The cross-disciplinary approach allows our teams to create projects that are as educational as entertaining. Project2k's work pushes the boundaries of nature and technology in unlikely and innovative ways.
The 2013-2014 cycle was characterized by great loss and great overcoming for Projects2k. Our founder, our heart, our fearless leader--Joy Wulke--succumbed to a nine-month battle with cancer in February 2014. Her passing was a shock to all of her collaborators at Projects2k, and friends and family beyond.

Watching and participating in P2K’s amazing and unique programs over the years it has been my pleasure to be associated this group of passionate artists and their science, environmental and education collaborators. All programs are created with modest budgets and often produced by volunteer talent. I am working along with other Board members to assure that P2k’s amazing and anticipated programs continue. We also need to acknowledge the talent and hard work of P2K’s event and education creators with compensation.
We are especially eager to see a new Quarry project which is much anticipated. With the downturn in the economy it has been challenging to raise the $150,000.00 needed to produce the Terra multi-media spectacle that all are anticipating, our last was Terra Mirabila in 2005 which continues to live on in memory of many. The question is often asked “When is the next one”.
“It was an amazing event such as I have never seen or experienced”
“I want to learn more about Geology (15 year old boy)”.
Programs for events include a Glossary and Bibliography and is a start for curriculum for science learning through the arts.
Through these science and environmentally themed events and programs P2K can change lives.
Many environmentalists and scholars recognize that planet
earth and humanity are at a critical juncture. It is P2k’s sole purpose to reawaken people’s connection to nature. We accomplish this through our classroom and educational curricula for youth and our outdoor expansive spectacles. We are fortunate to work with many talented scholars in the Greater NH area and
throughout the state. Our relationships with our collaborators is
P2k’s best quality. Our team is nimble and motivated to bring forward new
technology while being environmentally conscious.
Because of the quality and technical requirements of our work, we require a large amount of funding. We have
struggled over the years with the ability to maintain a strong financial
position year to year. We sustain little to no overhead and most
producers and creative staff are all volunteers. Fortunately we are strongest at maximizing the talented people available to us. Over the past 10 years or so, funding by the
Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism and other major arts
funding across the country is down. Additionally
the ability to manage and motivate a board of directors to engage in the
development of a major fundraising campaign is challenging. Additional funding for capacity building and board development would be helpful to the ongoing success of the organization.

Greater New Haven is home to a thriving arts community that includes theatre, music, dance and the visual arts. It is invested in its museums, historic preservation and the celebration of its members’ ethnic and cultural diversity.
Stewardship of our natural resources is essential if we wish to guarantee that present and future generations enjoy clean water, good air quality and open spaces. When you support organizations that protect the environment you address immediate need today while ensuring a greener tomorrow.
