Mission Statement

Shoreline Arts Alliance's Mission is to Transform Lives Through the Arts.


For nearly 40 years, Shoreline Arts Alliance has enriched Connecticut’s cultural landscape through our programs, arts advocacy, and mission to Transform Lives Through the Arts. At the heart of our mission is a commitment to Educate, Encourage, Enrich, and Engage and we follow these guiding principles in all areas of our work


In 1980, a coalition of area arts organizations and artists came together with the goals of sponsoring and encouraging Shoreline arts activities, serving as an umbrella organization for existing arts groups, and building a regional arts center.  Since that time, Shoreline Arts Alliance has continued to build arts awareness and audience participation throughout the region by helping to build a strong base of arts organizations known as Member Organizations.

Shoreline Arts Alliance has served these Member Organizations as a local arts agency, providing collaborative, promotional, and professional development opportunities. Shoreline Arts Alliance also serves thousands of performing and creative artists annually, from aspiring students to professionals, through a variety of arts programs and awards.
