The Connecticut Center for Arts and Technology (ConnCAT) and Connecticut Community Outreach Revitalization Program (ConnCORP) hosted “Thank You Dixwell Community” Block Party last Saturday in the parking lot behind Dixwell Plaza. The location builds on a budding relationship between Stetson Library, which was located in the plaza for years and is now moving to the Q House, and ConnCAT. Sam Hadelman tells the story in photos from the event.
