A dynamic and diverse blend of historic and ground-breaking places, people and experiences define Connecticut. The arts are at the very core of our communities as shown in our slogan, “Small state, big heart, great art!” Air in Connecticut is a program of the Connecticut Office of the Arts. Using READI as a lens (Relevance, Equity, Access, Diversity and Inclusion) the Office of the Arts invests in Connecticut artists and arts organizations and encourages the public’s participation as creators, learners, supporters, and audience members. We strive to connect all people to the arts to build vital communities across the state where artistic expression and creation is centered.

CT Air Facilitators will work as a cohort under the auspices of COA to facilitate Engage and Shift workshops across the state that are community-driven and that focus on helping municipalities build their local creative economy using the Air program strategies to achieve their goals.
