Supporting Arts and Culture in CT

The Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) partners with regional organizations to help arts and cultural communities thrive. These organizations help us support your local creative economy by:


  • Helping you access and use COA programs and services
  • Providing hands-on support in your community, including marketing, technical assistance, arts and culture advocacy, and more
  • Building relationships between artists, arts organizations, communities, municipalities, educators, and others in your area

Here are Connecticut’s DRSOs and the towns they serve.
