About the Guild

Coastal Arts Guild CT Logo Stratford CTThe Coastal Arts Guild of CT was created to support and foster the growth of the arts, education and cultural experiences in the Stratford, CT region.

We do this through collaborations among professional and emerging artists of all mediums, patrons of the arts, businesses, schools and community organizations and through advocacy for the arts.

Our belief is that a community’s appeal, economic vibrancy and quality of life are enriched by the support of a diverse and thriving arts and cultural scene. We provide a sense of place, where residents and businesses can be enriched through engagement with the arts.

We recognize that collaboration with surrounding organizations expands outreach and increases overall community assets.

Our advocacy for the arts provides opportunities for members to learn and share their art for the community’s benefit
