Be Informed

Stay Current Through Professional Development Opportunities & More

CAFC shares professional, funding, job & other opportunities as well as professional development offerings. Discussion, mutual learning, & shared experiences are at the heart of the network. Each year, CAFC schedules a series of topical workshops, convenings, meetings, and roundtables designed to support organizations and artists. In addition, we host on-going programs through Communities of Practice in order to foster cooperation and innovation among the constituencies we serve. Our three newsletters keep our members up-to-date on local, regional, and national news.

The Cultural Alliance is the hook and thread that stitches together Fairfield County’s cultural institutions and artists into an informative blanket for all to adopt into their daily lives.
