The Voice of Art (TVOA) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) visual art organization founded in 2017.
It is dedicated to creating art experiences that enrich the lives of CT residents throughout the state.
Our current vision for The Voice of Art is to provide meaningful integration of arts and cultural community-building activities for residents of the Litchfield community. Also, TVOA is expanding its educational and health-related studio art program for residents of the Litchfield community and aims to reach a wider and diverse audience through such activities as classes, workshops, and outreach programs for community, all with the goal of inspiring and educating.
TVOA also aims to provide opportunities for new viewers to experience high-level artworks by emerging and established artists through accessible exhibitions of their work, both in TVOA’s virtual gallery and in venues provided by multiple business communities.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Statement
The Voice of Art believes its community of artists, staff and board play a unique role in modelling the humanity in all of us. Because we value the arts as a universal language, we strive to create socially just learning environments that are reflective of the surrounding towns’ demographics and that affirm and practice the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion through the various roles and responsibilities we have in all our work.
We respect all communities with which we work and strive for ongoing reflection on patterns of racism, sexism, heterosexism, cis-sexism, classism, ableism, nativism, ageism, religious, body type and other forms of discrimination and oppression that can negatively affect anyone in the surrounding communities.
Equity: fairness and justice for all people.
Diversity: variety, multiplicity, and intersectional.
Inclusion: authentic representation, empowered participation, full access,
and true belonging.
