Arts and Culture

Our grant to the After School Arts Program’s Metamorphosis Project bridges art and the environment for students at Children’s Community School in Waterbury, giving students a deeper understanding of the natural world.


  • To bring interactive arts experiences to people where they live, reaching local neighborhoods and communities through the collaborative work of arts and community service agencies.

  • To support innovative, interactive programs that provide immersion in the arts and to enable access to the arts for underserved populations that may otherwise be excluded, while encouraging broader community engagement and revitalization.

  • To encourage substantial partnerships that result in shared goals and responsibilities between service agencies and creative agencies or artists.
