Arts Council was formed for the purpose of creating and
promoting a connecting thread between artists and those
who have an interest in experiencing the arts. Sometimes the only
difference between a life full of art, and a life void of art, is the
simple accessibility of the arts
. The Valley Arts Council is
to ensure that the contribution the arts can make to one's life is
recognized, valued, promoted and realized in the lives of all Naugatuck
Valley residents. The Valley Arts Council has an ongoing commitment
to recognize that a community which encourages, supports, and fosters
the arts, empowers its citizens to think, work and live creatively.

Nest Arts Factory, Bridgeport,
The Nest Arts Factory's premise
is that art is a visionary process in regard to its influence on
society. It is a verb and not a noun. It is not static - constantly
evolving and synthesizing . The Nest looks at the process from a holistic
point of view. Looking at every part that makes up the whole. In this
synergy there is a dialogue between the artist and society. For this
dialogue to exist there needs to be a place for the artist to express
themselves. The Nest has created a place where the artist can have affordable
studio space to create their world. It also created open spaces for the
performing and visual artist to share their work with the community both
near and far. This creates the environment for the artist to evolve. These
open spaces are also shared with the community to be part of the process.
This philosophy is that art is not secular and it is part of the innate
human process to be shared with everyone. The Nest Arts Factory vision
serves the public and becomes part of the fabric of the community serving
both the old and young as a place to experience one's thoughts, share ideas,
dreams, and creation together.
