Connecticut Arts Alliance (CAA) is our state’s ONLY statewide arts advocacy organization. Led by a diverse group of artists, arts educators, and arts professionals, our unified voice promotes the importance of arts and culture in building healthy, vibrant, and connected communities.  Established in 2005, CAA is now expanding its reach in an effort to include even more arts and cultural organizations across the state by creating a Membership Program.

As an arts advocacy organization, our goals are to:

  • Raise awareness of the arts, their economic impact and benefits
  • Advocate for increased funding for the arts
  • Influence actions, policies, and programs that affect the arts
  • Promote the value of the achievements of the arts industry
  • Educate on how to advocate, especially to legislators and municipal leaders
  • Ensure that the arts remain central to life throughout Connecticut

CAA recently made tremendous strides in getting the arts on the political agenda through a nonpartisan public education campaign called Create the Vote CT.  That effort led Governor Ned Lamont and Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz to include arts and culture, along with tourism, as one of fifteen transition policy committees formed to make recommendations to their new administration. We are building on that momentum and plan to continue to raise awareness of the impact that arts and culture have on education, the economy, and our quality of life in Connecticut.
