A $2,640 October Quick Grant to ArtsWestCT (fiscally sponsored by the Arts Council of Greater New Haven) supports their Poets are Not a Luxury event on Saturday, November 19, 2022, at West Haven High School.

“ArtsWestCT is honored to support Antionette Brim-Bell—a West Haven resident—in using her platform as Connecticut’s 8th Poet Laureate to explore today’s poets’ important role in shaping our understanding of history and culture, says Elinor Slomba, President, ArtsWestCT.

“Distinguished panelists from Hartford, Milford, New London, and the Eastern Pequot Tribal Nation will kick off a robust discussion that will build up a map of poetry-centered community engagement projects across the state. This event will be eye-opening!”
