Candidate Forums

A statewide series of virtual candidate forums hosted by the CT Arts Alliance and its regional partners

Connecticut can’t recover without the arts. You will elect statewide representatives that must quickly address complex issues facing the future of our state. They must understand that supporting and protecting the arts and culture sector is critical to rebuild our economy, revitalize our neighborhoods, and reimagine our way of life during and beyond the pandemic. Harnessing the power of the arts must be part of their plans for a resilient Connecticut.

MARK YOUR CALENDAR AND STAY TUNED for details and registration links to learn more about candidates’ views on the issues facing the arts and cultural community and their ideas on how to address them.
