Blue Ribbon Recipient of the Month: Chloe Cunha

We’re excited to share that Chloé Cunha is our Blue Ribbon Recipient of the Month. The Blue Ribbon recognizes a staff member, volunteer or intern who has demonstrated great dedication and outstanding performance at Arts at the Armory.

Chloé is a key and valued member of our core administrative team. In pre-COVID times, she was the “face” of Arts at the Armory for so many–communicating with event hosts with great patience, care and expertise. Now she has successfully pivoted in her role to focus on ROOTED marketing, and is doing an excellent job with it. We are so fortunate to have Chloé’s articulate, personable, and funny voice behind our ROOTED promotion.

Chloé Cunha is a comedian, poet, and occasional actor, but only when she gets to be a queer vampire and/or assassin such as in the retro indie horror film Blood of the Tribades (2016), or The Penumbra Podcast. A Cambridge native, she does stand-up all throughout the greater Boston area, and was the Comic-in-Residence at The Comedy Studio in November 2019. Catch her on Twitter @ChloeCunha or take a listen to the comedy debate podcast Pick a Side Stupid!, for which she contributes frequently! 

1. What do you do at Arts at the Armory?
Bit of a tricky question… I used to mostly help organize and book events, though understandably, have not been doing much of that lately! My focus in recent months has been on increasing our social media presence and doing some marketing / promotion for our revamped ROOTED Cafe.

2. How long have you worked at Arts at the Armory?
Three years this coming Dec; or, if you properly count how the passage of time has felt in the last 6 months, a couple thousand millenia.

3. What’s your favorite thing about working here?
There’s a lot to like! We’re a small but great little team and I couldn’t ask for better co-workers or bosses, especially now during such a stressful time– and I really enjoy the flexibility of my hours.

4. What is something you would like our community to know about you?
Though it’s all virtual right now, I do stand-up comedy as well. It’s been weird adjusting to online shows but I hope comedy lovers will check out some of the Zoom shows happening at The Comedy Studio for example, and help support the local scene.
