John Murphy-Human Arts Media

About John Murphy-Human Arts Media

I’ve been working in radio and TV since my high school days and I love working with students!

I serve as adjunct faculty in the Communication Department at Eastern Connecticut State University and I also work with middle-school students in the Puentes al Futuro/Bridges to the Future Program at the Center for Community Engagement at ECSU.

I am very involved with using media to support my regional arts community.

I own Human Arts Media, a consulting and production company serving new business start-ups, nonprofits, co-ops, social/human services and arts organizations.

I am a double Goddard College alumnus—with a Bachelor's in media studies and community development and a Master's from the Socially Responsible Business and Sustainable Communities (SBC) Program.

In 2008 I was honored to receive a State of Connecticut General Assembly Official Citation Award for 30 years of public service in community radio. In 2011 I received a Wavy Gravy Basic Human Needs Award from the Seva Foundation for media service to the arts and local communities.
