The Coastal Arts Guild of CT, a 501c3 non-profit, was created to support and foster the growth of the arts, educational and cultural experiences in the Stratford, CT region.
We do this through collaborations among professional and emerging artists of all mediums, patrons of the arts, businesses, schools and community organizations, as well as through advocacy for the arts.
Our belief is that a community’s appeal, economic vibrancy and quality of life are enriched by the support of a diverse and thriving arts and cultural scene. We provide a sense of place, where residents and businesses can be enriched through engagement with the creative community.
We recognize that collaboration with surrounding organizations expands our reach and increases overall community assets.
Our advocacy for the arts provides opportunities for members to learn and share their art for the community’s benefit.
