Immediately following the Sandy Hook tragedy, Newtown was flooded with artistic contributions nationwide, including donations of artwork, materials, supplies, equipment, proposals for memorials, services for programs and workshops, and multiple fundraising efforts specifically for the arts.  Newtown Cultural Arts Commission is responsible for managing this incredible out pour of support, which continues today.   

Considering the scope and size of contributions and the limited capacity to manage the response during the crisis, the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut helped with infrastructure, facilitation, and coordination and immediately worked to convene an Arts Action Team.  The Team consisted of representatives of the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission, the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut, and the Connecticut Office of the Arts.
