Want to put your two cents in about the Connecticut Office of the Arts, formerly the state's Commission on Culture and Tourism — but down-classified when it became part of the Department of Economic and Community Development?
The COA will have a series of public forums about its new direction to the arts and cultural community.
Christopher "Kip" Bergstrom, DECD's deputy commissioner, and COA staff will be present.
There will be time for Q & A and public comment. Each forum will include small group breakout sessions to exchange ideas about "constituent needs."
The first one will be Jan. 24, 3 to 5 p.m. at
Others are: Feb. 1, 9:30 to11:30 a.m. at
