Professional Development

Cooperation & Innovation

Each year, CAFC offers a series of topical workshops designed to support organizations and artists. In addition, we host meetings to foster cooperation and innovation among the constituencies we serve.

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.


CAFC offers one-time, or short-series, workshops on fundraising, fiscal sponsorship, working with schools, grant opportunities, etc. Some are organized in-house, others are organized with partner agencies, such as the CT Office of the Arts, CT Humanities, and New England Foundation for the Arts.


Biweekly, alternating Artists and Organizations Newsletters are sent to 1,600 subscribers. They each contain Cultural Alliance news and events, news of our members, important national and regional arts and cultural news, calls for entries, funding and other opportunities, a cumulative calendar of opportunity deadlines and job postings.



Unleash your inner creativity. Redefine, replenish, re-energize.
