Kwanzaa celebration

Charter Oak Cultural Center, a beautiful historic landmark and vibrant non-profit multi-cultural arts center, doing the work of social justice through the arts

Charter Oak Cultural Center harnesses the power of the arts…

to create positive social change, loving community and a safe place for self-expression. Located in a historic building, we present multi-cultural arts programming that we make accessible for free or at a very low cost, we provide completely free classes in the arts to 1000 underserved Hartford young people, work extensively with the homeless community and present performances and exhibits that bring to light the burning issues of our day.

Our goals are

 To do the work of social justice through the arts

To provide wide access to the magic of the arts for all, regardless of income

 To celebrate the heritage of our historic building and to preserve it in perpetuity

Please join us!
