Become a Partner
Arts, cultural and historic partners in the region represent a diverse cross section from small organizations and individual artists to libraries, historical societies and large tourist attractions.
Both nonprofit and for-profit organizations are part of the creative sector. With the purpose of uniting the region, Coalition Partners also include theaters, galleries, educational institutions, military officials, municipalities, elected officials, economic development groups, planners, tourism agencies, and chambers of commerce located in and/or serving southeastern Connecticut. Individual artists need not live in the region to become a Partner.
