Some of the great things people have said about the NW CT Arts Council:
From the moment I joined [the NW CT Arts Council] I've received nothing but support, information and inspiration from your great organization.
During the CultureMIX networking event, I mentioned we could really use a marketing assistant this season. Poof. Magic. “Meet Aaron,” Amy replied, adding, “He has just earned his bachelors in Arts Management and is looking for a position!”
The Arts Council has proven to be a tremendous source of ideas, information and support in promotion, introductions to artists, collaborations and management strategies.
Through the Peer Advisor Network we identified several organizational issues that we needed to address. This service provided through the Arts Council made a difference to the Torrington Historical Society so that our organization can be in a stronger position to make a difference in our community as well.
On behalf of Pilobolus, I want to thank you deeply for spending the time and giving it the thoughtful evaluation that you have. Thank you thank you thank you!
Can't tell you how much help you have already been as of this morning's meeting. Not only have you correctly identified our present situation but along with the analysis come the positive experience you have had several times with this program. Keep all suggestions coming. This is a tremendous help.
I want to thank you for all your help with the Makers Market event. It was so helpful to have someone as a go-to for certain information and to have an active supporter and advocate. I love the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council!
I just want to give a BIG THUMBS UP to the Arts Council for doing such a Great Job Hosting [the CultureMIX in Kent]! Everyone was so friendly and discussing what they love. A super place to Network!
As collectors, it means so much to us to know the artists; hear their stories of how they created what we now own, and what their thoughts were in the process. It makes our art ‘come alive’ to us, and when we tell the stories, we live the excitement of finding the piece all over again.
I thank you all for your hard work on this tour. It was an amazing opportunity for me, one that may literally change my life.
Thank you for the Garden Party book. It is lovely. I was touched with how eloquently my "bio" was written. You and your team are a class act! It was a pleasure being a part of such a cool event.
We all know that this would not have happened without all of your strong and yet human leadership, so I in turn want to thank all of you for being there for us, each step of the way.
Huge congratulations to you and your staff for the selection of artists and general organization of OPEN YOUR EYES! At each stop I made, the artists were thrilled at the constant flow of visitors. I noticed people came from a wide geographic area. So you’ve proven yourselves geniuses at getting the word out.
Thanks again for all the fabulous StEPs-CT publicity. MUCH appreciated!! Being able to connect our institutions to the appropriate technical assistance and resources is so important and you do such a great job at it!
