The Windham Regional Arts Council was formed in 1983 to organize community arts activities in the Windham CT area. We are a non-profit volunteer organization with a membership of nearly 300, and new members are always welcome.

We Are Celebrating our 40th Year!


The Windham Regional Arts Council was established in 1983, in conjunction with the celebration of the 150th year of the establishment of the borough of Willimantic.

Since then, WRAC has grown in membership and scope. We serve the greater Windham area in our mission to bring arts & cultural experiences to the community. We are a non-profit organization, made up entirely of volunteers.

Visit our Events Page for upcoming events for the remainder of 2023

In 1983, a group of dedicated citizens gathered with an idea to create a dedicated organization for visual, literary and performing arts to Windham and surrounding towns. After 40 years, we are going strong with a growing membership and active board of directors. 

Please visit our membership page and consider joining us as a member. You need not be an artist, musician or other performing artist. Membership is open to all!
