WHO WE ARE: History/Mission

Established in 1973 by a group of art supporters interested in growing and enriching the arts in Groton, The Groton Center for the Arts (GCA) played an important role in bringing the arts to lives of many. Today as 3Rivers Arts, we are continuing to build on the fine cornerstones left for us by the founders and early volunteers.

Interesting facts:

  • Our early successes included Septemberfest, now Grotonfest, a blockbuster event each fall in Groton center.
  • Indian Hill Music, which began as an amateur organization sponsored by the GCA, now boasts tremendous success in music, education and performance.

Today 3Rivers Arts is an “incubator for creativity” supporting and promoting artists and arts groups to get their art to a broader audience. Our services includes event management, development consulting, artist workshops, fiscal sponsorship, and strategic planning.
