Connecticut Arts Alliance Launches Membership Campaign

The Connecticut Arts Alliance (CAA) has launched a new Membership Program to strengthen the voice of the arts community and broaden the participation of arts and cultural organizations from across the state in the Alliance.
CAA is a non-profit, statewide arts advocacy organization led by a diverse group of artists, arts educators, and arts professionals. Their mission is to promote the importance of arts and culture in building healthy, vibrant, and connected communities through awareness campaigns, advocacy, and education.
Established in 2005, CAA is now expanding its reach in an effort to include even more arts and cultural organizations across the state by creating a Membership Program.
With arts partners and allies throughout Connecticut, CAA recently made tremendous strides in getting the arts on the political agenda in the 2018 gubernatorial election through a nonpartisan public education campaign called Create the Vote CT. That effort led Governor Ned Lamont to include arts and culture, with tourism, as one of fifteen transition policy committees to make recommendations to the new administration.
The Alliance hopes to build on that momentum and continue to raise awareness of the impact that arts and culture have on education, the economy, and our quality of life in Connecticut.
Through joined efforts, the new Membership Program will raise the voice of individual arts and cultural organizations and work on their behalf to build a strong arts and culture sector that benefits each member and all Connecticut residents.
Organizations joining this year will be considered Charter Members. Benefits include being listed on the CAA website and printed materials; receiving newsletters as well as invitations and discounts to advocacy events; and having opportunities to participate in CAA committees and to host gatherings and events.
Arts and cultural organizations interested in membership may visit, email, or call 860-601-0296. Arts patrons and allies are encouraged to visit the organization’s website for more information as well.

What if Trump refuses to accept defeat in 2020?

President Donald Trump’s critics are increasingly focused on the question of which Democrat will challenge him for the presidency in 2020.
