The Artists Collective is a cultural institution serving the Greater Hartford region, providing year-round professional training in dance, music, drama, visual and martial arts emphasizing the arts and culture of the African Diaspora.
The Collective is unique in that its programs represent a non-traditional approach to arts education because they also include social skills training, school success and community responsibility. Individual and group workshops expose children to positive role models, stimulating youth to think critically and develop self-esteem, self-awareness, and pride in one’s cultural identity.
Artists Collective programs expose students and the community at large to great and too often overlooked artists of the past and present. The Collective offers the highest quality training in the performing arts-dance, theater, music and visual arts.
