WELCOME TO THE HAMDEN DEPARTMENT OF ARTS & CULTURE

The Hamden Dept. of Arts and Culture acts as an overarching umbrella in which community bridge building through the Arts is fostered, economic collaboration and opportunities between local organizations are built, and all Town related visual-branding, graphic design, and professional photography come together in one place.

likable place to live, work and do business through the Arts & Culture. 
The vision of the Department of Arts, Culture & Special Projects is to promote
and support Hamden’s artists and arts organizations, encourage civic engagement, cultivate economic opportunities and celebrate our rich diversity
and heritage through the Arts & Culture.
