What two of our members have said:

“It was my connection with the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County…that gave me the ongoing confidence and trust in my work to comfortably – and proudly – be able to say that I’m an artist. I’ve learned how to express what I do and why; to see that I have a place at the table alongside other artists; and to receive and accept the feedback that my work garners..”

"When you are a small-staffed arts not-for-profit it is easy to miss opportunities. Thanks to the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County, I get the support and am kept up to date on the many opportunities that benefit arts organizations. You keep me in the know and help me to move forward!"
