Our founding ordinance of 1981 stipulates our mission: “to stimulate, facilitate, coordinate and cooperate with existing organizations for the development of the arts. It shall serve as an information center and focal point in the community for activities in the arts.”
The Hamden Arts Commission will facilitate the development of the arts in Hamden through programs and project development and presentation, and by serving as a cultural information and resource center. We view our efforts as important components of community and economic initiatives which contribute to Hamden's being an attractive place to live and a worthwhile place to visit.
