This November, we will vote in one of the most important elections in recent history. In partnership with the state's Designated Regional Service Organizations (DRSOs), the Connecticut Arts Alliance has organized "Create The Vote," a campaign to focus attention on the importance of the arts and culture in your voting deliberations November 3.

Your newly-elected statewide representatives will have to quickly address complex issues facing the future of our state. They must understand that supporting and protecting the arts and culture sector is critical to rebuild our economy, revitalize our neighborhoods, and reimagine our way of life during and beyond the pandemic. 

Harnessing the power of the arts must be part of their plans for a resilient Connecticut.
The CT Arts Alliance sent out a questionnaire to all General Assembly candidates to answer. The Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County is following up that questionnaire with this forum in which the candidates will discuss their plans to strengthen the arts and culture sector in our state.

This virtual forum, part of a series of regional candidate forumsconnecting voters and candidates, will present six candidates from across coastal Fairfield County speaking on the five questions asked of them in the candidate questionnaire. Audience questions will be welcome if time allows.  Register Here.

Candidates in the Forum are: William Haskell (D, Senate 26), Anthony Hwang (R, Senate 28), Alex Kasser (D, Senate 36), Michelle Lapin McCabe (D, Senate 28), David Rutigliano (R, House 123), M. Patrizia Zucaro (R, House 143).
Create the Vote CT is a nonpartisan public education campaign to raise awareness and support for the arts among voters and candidates running for public office. CT Arts Alliance launched the first Create the Vote CT during the gubernatorial election in 2018 and inspired focus on the arts during Governor Lamont’s transition and helped stabilize statewide public funding for the first time since the Great Recession. The initiative was originally conceived and developed at MASSCreative, a state arts advocacy organization in Massachusetts.
