About the Guild

Coastal Arts Guild CT Logo Stratford CTThe Coastal Arts Guild of CT (formerly the Stratford Arts Guild) is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts and cultural organization. We exist to support growth of the arts and culture in the Stratford, CT region. We do this through an organized arts collaborative. It is comprised of artists of all media, patrons of the arts, community organizations and businesses.

The Guild believes a community’s quality of life is enhanced by diverse and thriving cultural arts activity by the community.

We also recognize the need to collaborate with other surrounding arts organizations to further expose creative activity through an accessible network.

The CAGCT advocates access to the arts for all. We create opportunities for members to display or perform their artistic works for the public’s enrichment.
