Increasingly, we recognize that the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County must invest in more creative and transformative ways to confront the systemic racism and gross inequities that exist throughout the region, because they significantly challenge our ability to connect people, places and cultures.
Cultural Alliance 2.0 is a new pro-active approach to significantly diversify the people, perspectives and traditions that inform the region’s cultural infrastructure. Our work launches with an ongoing Listening Campaign, and the creation of a network of Culture Connectors who will literally embody a multiplicity of perspectives and experiences. This collective of equity stewards will inform and guide our planning and program designs.
We plan a network of eventually some 70 Culture Connectors, who will reflect the demographics and dynamics of each town, and who will be paid modest honoraria, where required to cover time and expenses (mileage, childcare, etc.). To launch the network we have started a campaign, backed by the Community Match Fund of Sustainable CT, to raise $15,000 to pay our first cohort over the next year.
Please help us raise $7,500, which will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Sustainable CT. Find out more, and consider contributing towards our goal any amount from $10 up. Go to https://patronicity.com/CultureConnectors to find out more and make your contribution. And thank you!
NOTE: Our Annual Appeal will begin Nov. 15, and if you would prefer to donate to the Cultural Alliance for general operating support, you will be able to give separately, on our Donate page).
