About the Department


The Hamden Arts & Culture Department is a cultural resource and information center, and a focal point in the community for activities in the arts. We present close to 40 programs annually, and also enthusiastically support the individuals and organizations that work to enhance the arts in our town.

The Arts Commission has been collaborating with the Town since 1981. It is composed of 15 volunteer commissioners, each a Mayoral appointment, who are assisted by one full-time employee, and one part-time assistant, in an office in the Miller Library Cultural Center.

Our monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month and are always open to the public. Please join us! Call or email to find out where we will be meeting: 203-287-2546 or HDAC@hamden.com
