Embracing our heritage and sharing our culture with the community.
Act 1, Act Tú: Bilingual Theatre Program
The Hispanic Alliance “Act 1, Act Tú” bilingual theatre program launched July 2022. In collaboration with Chestnut Street Playhouse, the Hispanic Alliance creates a unique, rewarding, and fulfilling theatre experience that is accessible to English and Spanish-speaking actors and audiences alike. No acting experience is necessary, and there is no cost to participate.

The Hispanic Alliance Noche de Gala
The Noche de Gala is an evening where we celebrate the achievements of our youth scholars and share our music, dance, food, and culture with the larger New London community. Featuring a live band, this annual celebration allows you to have the opportunity to dress up and put on your dancing shoes! For over 20 years, the Noche de Gala has been a “can’t-miss” event.
Art Therapy and Art Expression Workshops
Hispanic Alliance Art Therapy and Art Expression Workshops provide opportunities for community members to bond with peers and channel their creative side. Workshops sessions are specially tailored to each individual group. In the past we have created workshops for youth, adults, seniors, mothers, coworkers, and entire families. Art supplies, food, drink, and music are provided in our tranquil gallery space on State Street.
Imagine Public Art
The Imagine Public Art project seeks to energize the City’s identity as an arts community. As the convener of this project, the Hispanic Alliance partners with private developers, city departments, foundations, arts and educational organizations, civic groups, cultural institutions, and individuals who embrace public art as a city-wide urban beautification in the work of growing and strengthening the community.
We use individual and panel presentations, small group discussions, and self-expression through art work to accomplish curricular goals. This program is supported by the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut.
