International Arts and Ideas Festival makes a return to New Haven in 2021


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — The International Arts and Ideas Festival is back for 2021. Let’s break down how you can take part in this annual affair.

The arts had to adapt to the pandemic and that included the popular annual summer event in New Haven. In the summer of 2020, the International Arts and Ideas Festival came up with an idea called “Arts on Call,” a way to get artists to the masses. The program nearly paid $10,000 to artists who performed for New Haven residents.

Joining News 8 is Executive Director Shelley Quiala to discuss the return of that program.
