The 44th Annual Arts Awards



Now Accepting Nominations for Awardees


In its 60th year and 44th Arts Awards ceremony, the Arts Council of Greater New Haven plans to revisit its 1984 theme of "Coming Together," highlighting the 16 towns within the Greater New Haven service region. 

Those include Bethany, Branford, Cheshire, East Haven, Guilford, Hamden, Madison, Meriden, Milford, New Haven, North Branford, North Haven, Orange, Wallingford, West Haven and Woodbridge. Each has its own unique flair; each brings a different piece to the cultural puzzle.

And each, perhaps, is better when working in collaboration with regional partners, from organizations to individual artists. Greater New Haven has a robust arts ecosystem, including hundreds of artists and creatives who grow the state’s cultural, emotional, and economic footprint. 

In turn, we who live here benefit from this work. It preserves culture, raises awareness, sparks joy and cultivates empathy.
