Creative Sector Survey now open!

We need your voice!  To better understand needs and to better serve the creative community, the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut has launched a regional survey and invite the Creative Sector  of all disciplines in Western Connecticut, Putnam and Westchester counties, to give input.  We hope to benchmark the needs of those who give so much back to our region.
