The Arts Revitalize the Economy

Business Talks Art

We know that the arts help to spur economic growth. But don’t take our word for it — listen to the local business leaders who’ve seen it firsthand. Then, help support the arts by donating to the Cultural Alliance of Western CT.

1% For The Arts Campaign

The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut teamed up with the CT Arts Alliance to advocate for 1% of ARP funding to municipalities. The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) sends money directly to municipalities in Connecticut for leadership to use in ways that will best help their community. We are asking local leadership to reserve 1% for the arts in our region. Ridgefield is the first to commit at least 1% to the arts in our region.

CT Cultural Sector

From 2.4 billion in lost revenue and 33,000 creative workers without jobs in Connecticut, the cultural sector was among the hardest hit during the pandemic. Executive Director, Lisa Scails, talks economic recovery.

Our Sponsors

We are grateful for the people, businesses, and organizations that share our passion for the arts.
