The Southeastern Connecticut Cultural Coalition is a new, independent nonprofit organization that serves as a Designated Regional Service Organization (DRSO) and works with the CT Department of Economic and Community Development’s Office of the Arts. Its mission is to foster region-wide economic growth in New London County by optimizing existing and new cultural/heritage activities, ensuring that these assets are central to regional revitalization.
As the voice of the cultural/heritage sector and the liaison between it and other leadership entities invested in regional revitalization—municipal, community, business, education, tribal, military, and tourism sectors—the independent nonprofit coalition will provide services to connect, strengthen and advocate for the creative community. Supporting the belief that culture is a catalyst for place making, the coalition seeks to play an innovative role in fostering partnerships among cultural sector assets and other regional initiatives that attract and retain businesses, residents and visitors. – less
