North Canaan: Arts Night Out
The Northwest Connecticut Arts Council is partnering with Great Falls Brewery for the next Arts Night Out, the Arts Council’s popular creative networking event. The event will be held at Great Falls Brewery (75 W Main St, North Canaan) on Thursday, February 13th, at 6:00 pm. Arts Night Out is a free networking opportunity for the creative community in the Litchfield Hills. Artists, business owners, creative economy workers, and curious neighbors are invited to come and network! The Arts Council encourages people to bring business cards and flyers or other material to share. There will be locally brewed craft beer, a community sketch pad, and an opportunity to share your 2020 art resolutions.
The Arts Council intends to provide a social networking opportunity for all who attend and a free fun night out for the arts community, while bringing business to local social spots such as breweries, wineries, galleries, and creative organizations. This is also a chance for those who attend to give the Council feedback on what their community needs to support the creative sector in their towns, and discuss possible solutions to the issues the region faces.
Maddie Stenson, Program Coordinator of the Northwest CT Arts Council says, “We are thrilled to host the Arts Night Out networking series again in 2020! We can’t wait to connect with new venues like Great Falls Brewery and reach new people. We hope that you will come kick off the new year at the first Arts Night Out of the decade us and enjoy a craft beer from Great Falls!”
Stephannie Grant, Taproom Manager of Great Falls Brewery adds, “Great Falls Brewing Company is excited to be part of NWCT Arts Night Out, and to support the art community in a place where craft beer meets art craft.”
