A Cultural District

The City of New London in partnership with Southeastern Connecticut Cultural Coalition is excited to announce the formation of a Cultural District.

A Cultural District is a specific area of a city or town identified by the municipality that has a number of cultural facilities, activities and/or assets – both for profit and nonprofit. The ability for a municipality to establish a Cultural District was enacted by Legislative Statute in 2019.

The city will be hosting a series of three virtual community conversations on zoom on January 21st, February 4th, and February 18th, at 4pm. Attend, participate and learn more about the Cultural District. We want to hear from you.
