Arts, Culture & Tourism Forum Review

On Friday, December 3, 2021, leaders from the arts, culture, and tourism sectors joined state legislators in Hartford to discuss the status of the sectors.

We were thrilled to have our own Board President, Calida Jones, present on the opening panel of the event and spoke on the need for more voices at the table from the arts sector and a better funding model for the state.

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.
