Arts & Culture

Embracing our heritage and sharing our culture with the community.

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.

Due to COVID-19, the 2022 Noche de Gala has been postponed. Check back for more information.

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.

Artist: Alejandro Melendez-Cooper, 2004.

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 will create a unique, rewarding, and fulfilling theatre experience that is accessible to English and Spanish-speaking actors and audiences alike. This program will run from July to August and is open to high school students in Southeastern Connecticut. No acting experience is necessary, and there is no cost to participate.
