Some of our stories
Making a Difference at Cuatro PuntosMusic Moves Hartford "Downtown Singers," a program of Cuatro Puntos, was formed primarily for those in our community experiencing homelessness and food insecurity. "It is important to use music for greater means than itself...forming a choir helps build a sense of community, purpose, and joy." - Kevin Bishop, Director, Cuatro Puntos
“[The] BVA partners were phenomenal…they understood social media in a way the FVAC board and volunteers did not…[they] put out surveys and collected a lot of data.” FVAC’s experience with the innovation goal workshop combined with findings generated by their BVA partners culminated in four distinct yet interwoven areas of potential growth: Visibility, Excitement, Community, and Sustainability.
Making a difference at Playhouse on Park"We are incredibly grateful to the Greater Hartford Arts Council. We are only 8 years old; we founded a professional theater in 2009 when the economy was at its worst. So without the support from foundations like the Arts Council, we certainly wouldn't be here. Programming support has allowed to supplement ticket prices and allow us to keep our tickets at a more affordable price range." Watch the video.
