Become A Partner
Our Partners are representatives who live, work and support the arts, cultural and creative sector in southeastern Connecticut. From sole proprietors, artists and small volunteer-run organizations, to professionally staffed museums, tourist attractions and arts centers, the Coalition includes a diverse cross section of nonprofit and for-profit individuals, businesses, groups and organizations.
Partnership with the Coalition is a two-way street. Our work depends on the sharing of information and a desire and willingness to connect and collaborate. There is no fee to be a Partner.
Partner benefits include:
• Gain knowledge through professional development opportunities
• Build awareness of your business/organization
• Share your opportunities (jobs, calls for artists, internships)
• Learn about and participate in regional initiatives (resources, grants, projects and more)
• Receive news and useful information from national, state, regional and local sources
• Network and unite with other creative organizations and individuals to advocate for the sector
By registering as a Partner, you are providing the Coalition with basic information in order to:
• Ensure we have the correct contact information for you, your organization, group, or business
• Allow us to invite you to our Roundtable/stakeholder conversations and other activities
• Allow us to send emails with relevant information
• Provide an opportunity for you to promote events/programs/activities
• Build awareness of our Partners to each other and to the public
• Connect you with other Partners
• Create a clearinghouse of regional resources with links back to each of our Partners
• Enable the Coalition to advocate for the sector.
Our Partners are our eyes, ears and boots on the ground.
