Open Call to Join Our Work

Connecticut Arts Alliance is looking for talented, passionate individuals to join our work.

Join Our Work

The national conversation on race, equity and social justice caused the Arts Alliance to look inward and acknowledge that we have not been open to and representative of the arts community and the residents of our state. We recognize that if we are to be successful as an organization, we need to do better at inviting all of the community to participate, whether through board or committee work, as part of our growing membership, or as community advocates.

To be effective, we must be an organization that fully reflects the community we serve, and that embraces the important contributions of those who have traditionally been excluded. In particular, we are prioritizing the involvement of BIPOC individuals to significantly expand that communities represented in our work.

This is an ongoing effort, and we don’t always get it right. But we are sincere in our conviction and invite those who may have thought there was not a place for them in this work to step forward and join us. You don’t need to be a leader of an arts organization, or part of an arts organization at all. All you need is a passion for the arts and a commitment to rolling up your sleeves.

If you are interested in joining our board or serving in another capacity (or you know someone who is), please get in touch! In the coming weeks, we’ll be reaching out to all who have expressed interest in serving to learn more about them and share more about us.

We are currently not accepting any more inquiries at this time. Look for more opportunities to volunteer with CAA in the future!

To get the conversation started, please provide us with some basic information by completing the form below. We’ll be in touch to schedule some time to get to know one another. If you have any questions, please reach out to Interim Executive Director Brett Thompson –

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.
