Cultural Leadership

Empowering the next generation


CAFC creates platforms from which artistic leaders can share ideas, advocate for the arts, and bring awareness to the public that arts are an integral and necessary part of our communities

Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County acts as a convener to bring together diverse sectors of the community to discuss a broad range of topics.

Creative Spaces for a Creative Economy (2016). See program.

Video recordings of each session, presenters’ PowerPoint slides, Full Report, and Executive Summary.

A parallel development to the Creative Space conference is SpaceFinder Connecticut, a space-matching online database, pioneered by CAFC and developed by Fractured Atlas, a New York-based arts service organization. SpaceFinder provides listings of spaces for rent to artists and cultural groups in Fairfield County and will eventually roll out to the rest of Connecticut through the cooperation with our peer Regional Service Organizations.

SpaceFinder Connecticut is made possible through funding provided by the Connecticut Office of the Arts.
