A Message to Our Alumni

Since 1970, the Artists Collective has touched the lives of thousands of Greater Hartford youth and their families.

Today, Artists Collective alumni are all over the world and the United States. Some of you have pursued careers in the arts, been inspired to work with youth in education, the ministry, various medical fields, as well as other vocations. Some of you are grandparents and great-grandparents bringing the next generation to the Collective for their training in the arts and cultural awareness.

For nearly 50 years, we have managed to continue our mission and good work with the support of many foundations, the City of Hartford, the State of Connecticut, the National Endowment for the Arts, and individuals who have consistently supported us for almost as long as we have been in existence. Today, as many of our institutional donors have scaled back their support, individual contributions are more important than ever.

To ensure the Artists Collective continues for future generations, if you can, please pay it forward by making a monetary investment of any amount to the Artists Collective.

Keep in touch, let us know what years you attended, where you are now, what you are doing, and how the Artists Collective impacted your life.

Remember your enlightening and wonderful experiences at the Artists Collective, tell us about it, and then, if you can, pay it forward for the next generation.
