Please join us at one of two Regional Forums CT Humanities will host in December. We want to bring you up to date on next steps for #CTPlaces advocacy in 2018 and give more information on our newly restored granting programs.
#CTPlaces, established in 2015, is a coalition of advocates for history and humanities-related organizations and sites in Connecticut. We frame our message around the fact that there are hundreds of special places and special heritage/humanities organizations whose vitality is fundamental to the state’s quality of life and competitiveness. Every town in CT has a history museum or historical society, has a library, has community groups that offer exhibits and programs that illuminate the values of an engaged informed CT. These places, in every town, exist and thrive with both public and private support.
Museums, historic houses and farms, libraries, heritage sites and trails, and other significant sites and buildings tell the story of Connecticut and constitute the fabric of our communities, past, present and future. We believe that continued public and private investment in history and humanities places supports the kinds of communities in CT where residents stay, businesses thrive, and newcomers want to call home.
