#GivingTuesday kicks off our 2018 Season of Giving fundraiser, “Why We Give to the Arts!” Our fundraising goal is $2018 and it will run until the end of the year.
The arts bring communities together, enable us to take risks, and give people a voice. The Greater Hartford Region is rich with arts and culture. From classes at your local arts center to visiting a museum, from theatrical performances to rehabilitative dance and movement, the arts give us a way to celebrate our present, honor the past, and dream of the future.
We celebrated #GivingTuesday by partnering up with Pietro’s Pizza on #garlicknotsforgood, where we invited the public into The Art Room at 100 Pearl to share why they give to the arts. In exchange, they got to grab a slice of pizza and some garlic knots! Here are just a few reasons why members of our community give to the arts:
Because we learn by teaching and teach when we learn.
To help Hartford grow into a vibrant scene
Because the arts made me who I am today
Creativity nourishes the individual soul and the spirit of our society
To showcase the multi-dimensional art presence so many overlook in Hartford
Because the arts have the power to bring communities together
Why Do You Give?
