Meet Our Members: Greater New Britain Arts Alliance

Connecticut Arts Alliance has begun a series of posts spotlighting its CAA members. The Membership Program, begun earlier this year, joins together arts organizations, artists, and arts patrons throughout Connecticut in building a strong arts and culture sector that benefits the arts and all Connecticut residents.

The Greater New Britain Arts Alliance promotes the creative, performing, and visual arts in New Britain, Berlin, Newington, Plainville, and Southington. The Arts Alliance provides a unified voice for arts organizations, serves as a catalyst for arts-related collaborations, nurtures individual creative abilities, and advocates the arts as vital to the economic health and quality of life in the region.

Its website and weekly Happening Here newsletter promotes events and performances in the region.

GNBAA also operates the STOCKMAN Gallery, a staffed gallery space where artists’ work can be experienced and marketed.

CAA is Connecticut’s ONLY statewide arts advocacy organization. If you agree that the advocacy efforts of Connecticut Arts Alliance on behalf of arts and culture in our state are important, please consider becoming a Charter Member today!

Connecticut Arts Alliance

The Connecticut Arts Alliance (CAA) was founded in 2005 as an advocacy organization to ensure that the arts remain central to life in Connecticut. The organization strives to promote and underscore the value of all achievements of the arts industry and all of the ways in which the arts improve daily life for residents of the State. Among its most visible programs are assisting with workshops for the annual Connecticut Arts Day at the Capitol organized by the Connecticut Office of the Arts, and providing advocacy guidance and resources in concert with the Office of the Arts and regional arts service organizations. The organization works to foster public education and awareness of the arts, to increase funding for the arts, and to influence public funding decisions and actions that affect the arts.
