QVCAH was formed in 1977 by a group of people concerned with the role of the arts and humanities in the lives of local citizens - before the days of the mandated local cultural commissions. As government funding for local cultural endeavors slowly disappears, the role of the Quinebaug Valley Council for the Arts and Humanities has become more important than ever in our lives and the lives of our children.
