Subject: Support for the Arts Is Support for ALL

“We have so much to learn from one another.”

This quote from our recent UBUNTU Storytelling Concert, “Building Bridges of Understanding'' speaks to how CAFC helps our members stay informed by coming together.

Discussion, mutual learning, & shared experiences are at the heart of our network. The arts are a gateway for inclusion and civic discussion.

CAFC responds to today's need for deepening our understanding of equity as it pertains to diversity, inclusion, equity, and access through professional development experiences, Communities of Practice, and Signature Programming.
