CT Humanities has just released three compelling infographics, or "Data Stories," with the data collected from recipients of the 2022 CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grants. This information, obtained from you, is a dramatic tool to help our legislature and others better understand who the CT culture sector is, and the impact the CT Cultural Fund Grants have had on our state. See:
In addition, CTH commissioned a representative survey of 1,000 CT adults (by educational attainment, age, race, and ethnicity) to discover who engages with the arts, culture, and humanities, what motivates them to do so, and the perceived impact and value Connecticut residents place on the arts, culture, and humanities in our state. See the report on the survey, and register below for a March 23 webinar presentation on the implications of these survey results.
CTH Presents Broad Population Survey Findings
Thursday, March 23 at 3 p.m.

In Spring 2022, Wilkening Consulting, CT Humanities, and the CT Office of the Arts surveyed more than 1,000 Connecticut adult residents to learn more about who in Connecticut engages with the arts, culture, and humanities, what motivates them to do so, and the perceived impact and value of the arts, culture, and humanities in our state.
Join Susie Wilkening from Wilkening Consulting and Scott Wands from CT Humanities to see what the survey revealed and how cultural organizations can use the findings.
Learn more and register for the Zoom info session. For more information on the data that CTH has collected about the CT cultural sector, visit our website.
