Northeast Region

In January 2021, the CT Office of the Arts announced the Southeastern CT Cultural Coalition will serve as COA’s Designated Regional Service Organization (DRSO) for the following towns in Windham and Tolland counties.

The Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) partners with Designated Regional Service Organizations (DRSO) that serve as local field offices to constituents and citizens. This statewide network of service providers plays a key role that is mutually beneficial to the state’s citizens and creative economy, the regional arts and cultural infrastructure, and COA’s goals, programs and services.
