A Journey

A musical solo performance that portrays seven historical women from different eras, who share their stories through song, movement and dialogue.

People power at its best!

We had a great time working with all sorts of people to design arts-based projects. We got 3 projects designed and moving into Action sessions. Stay tuned!

Let’s Make a Scene.

At the Cultural Alliance, we refer to our collaborators as our Allies. Because after 15 years of connecting artists and businesses across Western Connecticut, we understand the importance of community in creating an accessible, equitable, and thriving arts and culture scene. Become an Ally, and let’s make a scene together.

Don’t Just Dream. Do.

The Cultural Alliance provides programs and services, arts and culture advocacy, and business partnership opportunities that create real change.
Because we dream too. And then we take action.
