On Oct. 15th, the Arts & Culture Collaborative, Waterbury Region, in conjunction with NWCT Arts Council and CT Arts Alliance held a Candidates Forum on Zoom.

The session was one of five statewide regional forums, as part of Create the Vote CT, a nonpartisan public education campaign to raise awareness and support for the arts among voters and candidates running for public office.
