Connecticut Arts Hero Nomination Form 2018

NOMINATE AN ARTS HERO!

The Arts Hero Awards honor Connecticut residents who are doing extraordinary things in, for or through the arts. The 2018 Arts Hero Awards theme is RESILIENCY!

Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes. Some of the factors that make someone resilient are: a positive attitude, optimism, the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as a form of helpful feedback. Even after misfortune, resilient people are blessed with an outlook that they are able to change course and soldier on. (Psychology Today)

Do you know a special someone - a HERO - who is resilient and is doing extraordinary things in, for or through the arts in their community? If yes, please nominate them for a 2018 Arts Hero Award!   The deadline to submit a nomination is Friday, March 23, 2018.

The 2018 Arts Hero Awards will be presented on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 as part of Connecticut Arts Day 2018!
