Real Art Ways in Hartford
"Real Art Ways is in a vital Hartford neighborhood, and the organization benefits from Hartford’s cultural mix. A lot of what’s good about Hartford isn’t very known. This is where we live, and work, and that's ok." - Will K. Wilkins, Real Art Ways' Executive Director

John Dankosky (Host, Where We Live) says:
“We take Where We Live into communities all over Connecticut, to find out what residents are talking about - but Hartford is our home base, and so it has a special place for us. We’re glad that through our partnership with Real Art Ways, we can continue an important conversation about life in this city.”
