The New England Foundation for the Arts is making its way around Connecticut and will be stopping in four cities to provide organizations, artists, and creative businesses the opportunity to learn about NEFA's New England grant programs as well as CreativeGround, NEFA's free online directory.

Hosted by Connecticut Regional Arts Service Organizations, workshops will include a demonstration of CreativeGround that will guide individuals and organizations through the process of creating and updating a comprehensive profile - maximizing the profile's searchability as well as how to use CreativeGround to search for others for potential collaborations. Attendees will also learn about grant opportunities serving the New England region.
