KNSThe BRIDGE Series offers CMSC members quarterly networking and info-sharing events.

At our April session, members heard from CT’s Director of Culture, Kristina Newman-Scott. Kristina told CMSC members and Professional Affiliates about her vision for the department, including how she wants art to have a deeper, inherent place in economic development, and to teach artists to see themselves as small business owners. She also provided a brief overview of the many programs and grants available through the Office of the Arts, and State Historic Preservation Office. Click here to link to Kristina’s presentation which includes:

  • Overviews of the many programs and funding offered by SHPO and COA.
  • Compelling info on how much the arts contribute to CT’s bottom line and to  vibrant communities, positively impacting health, economics and families.
  • Outlines what’s next for the Office of the Arts, including a 5-year statewide, Arts & Cultural strategy.
