The Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County (CAFC) has been awarded a $215,000 grant from the Daniel E. Offutt III Private Foundation Trust, which will help enable CAFC to remain a strong advocate for our region's artists, cultural institutions and creative businesses. “This incredibly generous donation is truly a game-changer for the programs we offer and the services we provide to our 600+ members,” noted Cindy Vaccaro, CAFC Board of Directors President.  “Because of supporters like the Daniel Edward Offutt III Private Foundation Trust, CAFC is able to support artists and cultural organizations in the area with the advocacy, promotion, and leadership they require to thrive,” she added. “We believe, as Mr. Offutt did, that a community with a vibrant arts and culture sector is a great place to live, work, learn, and visit.”  Offutt lived in Weston for more than 30 years, and passed away in 2016, unmarried with no immediate survivors. Richard Orenstein, Foundation Trustee, said of Offutt, “Dan would have described himself as a ‘farmer,’ but he was much more than that. Those who knew him would remember him (in no particular order) as a tennis player, traveler, sailor, metal sculptor, wood worker, fixer of anything, collector of everything, lover of projects, stock market investor, and a good friend.” Orenstein stressed that Offutt wanted his legacy to bring future benefits to those engaged in such endeavors. 

CAFC is one of several Fairfield County, Connecticut, non-profits that will benefit from grants from the Daniel E. Offutt III, Private Foundation Trust. Recipients include the Library Associations of Wilton, Weston, and Westport; Beechwood Arts; the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University; the Silvermine Arts Center; the Westport Historical Society; and others. 
Our next SPOTLIGHT ON ARTS & CULTURE  discussion - on WPKN 89.5FM - is about three quite different artist groups: The Artists Collective of WestportThe NEST Arts Factory in Bridgeport, and the Ridgefield Guild of Artists. Why do artists band together - why historically and why today? What do these groups do, and what do they do that's different from one another? Are they all about location - or is there something else that brings them together? Listen as we hear from Miggs Burroughs and Nina Bentley, two co-founders of the Arts Collective of Westport, Jane Davila, Managing Director of the for-profit NEST Arts Factory, and Pam Stoddart, Executive Director of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists. Hear about their plans for the future. Listen in Mon. Nov. 12, noon: WPKN, 89.5 FM

Artistic Director: Rabbi Greg Wall

Jazz Nights at Pearl is a jazz series presented at The Pearl Restaurant at Westport's Longshore Park by the Jazz Society of Fairfield County, featuring the "Jazz Rabbi" and featured special guests every week. The Jazz Society of Fairfield County (JazzFC) was incorporated as a not for profit corporation to enrich the cultural life of Fairfield County by promoting the performance and appreciation of jazz music through the presentation of free or low cost concerts by accomplished artists, to outreach to under-served audiences, and to provide educational and performance opportunities for student, amateur and emerging professional musicians. JazzFC is also committed to the maintenance and preservation of its historic 1937 Steinway Model M grand piano, purchased and restored by Westport’s jazz fans! Formerly the house piano at the famous Village Gate jazz club in New York City, it has been played by a long list of iconic jazz musicians and inspires JazzFC’s efforts. Saxophonist Rabbi Greg Wall has been a driving force in helping create a vibrant jazz scene in Westport since relocating here in 2013. Drawing on his connections to the brightest stars in the jazz universe, cultivated during his 35 year career as an international performing and recording artist, Greg curates a weekly series that would be the envy of any jazz club in the country.

As part of its 13th year of holding Open Studios (10 with the Bridgeport Art Trail), American Fabrics Arts Building (AmFab), where 25+ artists will be creating, showing and selling their work this weekend, is, for its sixth year, supporting the Bridgeport Rescue Mission (BRM). The mission serves those in need, feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless, and helps people conquer drug and alcohol addictions. AmFab will be serving as a drop-off point for their Thanksgiving Stuff-A-Truck event, giving patrons the opportunity to donate food and coats for local families in need. 
The Bruce Museum has announced a promised gift of a highly significant collection of Native American baskets, textiles, and ceramics, to be donated by Mr. and Mrs. Jay W. Chai of Riverside, CT. The Museum’s Executive Director, Peter C. Sutton, characterized it as “a truly transformative gift.” The donation will build on the foundation of ethnographic material given to the Museum in 1967 by Greenwich resident Margaret Cranford and will enhance the Bruce Museum’s standing as a regional resource for scholars and aficionados of Native American material culture. The Museum's ethnology collection focuses on objects of peoples from the Americas and reflects the sophistication and diversity of the various cultures represented. The Native American collection is particularly strong in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century Southwest material, including Navajo textiles and jewelry, Pueblo blackware, and Plains beadwork. Baskets, tools and clothing come from Plains, Southwest and Northwest Coast peoples. Prehistoric material from the Northeast rounds out the collection since the Bruce Museum is the repository for archaeological material excavated in Greenwich. A selection of 13 Native American baskets from the promised gift is now on view in the Museum’s rotunda, as a timely complement to the exhibition A Continuous Thread: Navajo Weaving Traditions. The exhibition showcases a dozen Navajo textiles from the Museum’s Native American ethnographic collection, as well as biographical material about Miss Margaret Cranford. The exhibition will be on display in the Bantle Lecture Gallery through November 25. More...
The Connecticut Audubon Society - Fairfield Center has a new director: Shari Greenblatt. Shari will also be leading the Milford Center and Fairfield's historic Birdcraft Museum and Sanctuary. A seasoned non-profit professional with more than 20 years of experience in fundraising and project management, Shari was most recently at the Special Projects Department of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), one of the country’s leading international environmental organizations, where she produced large-scale fundraising galas and cultivation events, created and managed a junior committee, oversaw donor trips and cause-related marketing campaigns. One of her primary goals is to continue building top-of-mind awareness and recognition of the Connecticut Audubon centers and sanctuaries. “With their exceptional environmental education programs and activities, and exquisite nature preserves,” she says, “these centers are ‘hidden gems’ that should be top destinations for schools, individuals and families that want to strengthen their connections with nature, and learn how to protect and sustain it for future generations.” More...
INTEMPO Founder and Executive Director Angelica Durrell was among 15 women who were honored by the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame for their contributions to the arts and for the positive impact they make on their communities. The 2018 ceremony, which marked the 25th anniversary of the Hall of Fame and its awards, was held on November 5 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. Durrell, a 29-year-old Ecuadorian-born violinist and music educator and this year’s only Latina honoree, was recognized for the work she has done to make music education accessible, relevant, and inclusive. Directly after graduating from the University of Connecticut, Durrell founded INTEMPO, a Stamford, CT-based intercultural music-education organization that serves children from low-sociooeconomic-status backgrounds. “It is my pleasure to represent Latina women and minorities at the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame ceremony,” she said. “Women have used music to give voice and form to their experience, to raise questions that are of importance to our society, and to reflect the values ​​of our common culture. It is important for today's girls and young women to understand that they can use their art practice to raise awareness about the problems that affect our society and to inspire the type of societal changes that we want to see."
The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk announced that Maureen Hanley, a local businesswoman with extensive professional and charitable involvement in Fairfield County, is its new president and CEO. The Easton resident is the eighth president, and third woman, to hold the position in the Aquarium's 30-year history. A former community-banking executive who specialized in commercial lending, she was most recently senior vice president-team leader of United Bank for the past four years. She serves in leadership roles in numerous area organizations, including as Vice President of the Cardinal Shehan Center in Bridgeport, former director of the Women’s Business Development Council in Stamford and founder of Women in Leadership councils for the Stamford and Norwalk chambers of commerce, among many other positions. The Aquarium is about to embark on large changes in response to a federal project to replace the Walk railroad bridge run-in between the Aquarium’s main building and its IMAX Theater. Aquarium officials recently negotiated for a “functional replacement” agreement to build a new 4-D theater (in place of the IMAX Theater, which must be razed) and to relocate and fortify elements of the Aquarium that will be impacted during the bridge work. More...
The Merritt Parkway Conservancy, working for over 16 years to revitalize and celebrate the “Queen of the Parkways”, has named Wes Haynes as its new Executive Director. Haynes replaces Jill Smyth who held the position for 12 years before relocating to Colorado for family reasons. A native of Stamford, Wes has 40 years of experience in historic preservation, having held previous senior staff positions with the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation, New York [City] Landmarks Conservancy, and other non-profit organizations committed to the stewardship of historic places. “The Merritt is Fairfield County’s largest cultural asset, exceptional among Connecticut’s historic places and a refreshing greenway that I have never grown tired of driving, Wes commented. Also named to the Conservancy’s board of directors are: Jim Cameron, a Darien resident and longtime commuter advocate, who authors a weekly newspaper column on transportation issues, and Mary Ellen Lemay, a Trumbull resident who brings to the Conservancy a wealth of experience in preservation and remediation of native plant species, calling on her work as Coordinator for the Hudson to Housatonic Regional Conservation PartnershipMore...

Americans for the Arts will present a webinar giving a detailed analysis of the impact on the arts of the mid-term election on Mon. Nov. 19 (join here). The freshman class of representatives represents the most diverse group in race, religion, age, and profession. Other highlights:
● House Democrats will become the new chairmen of many appropriations sub-committees and policy and tax committees, including Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) as chair of Interior Appropriations overseeing arts funding, Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) on Labor-Education Appropriations, and Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA) on the House Ways and Means tax committee, all of whom earned an “A+” in the 2018 Congressional Arts Report Card.
● Congressional Arts Caucus Chairman Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ) was narrowly defeated (he had an “A+” arts record).
● Most Senate Republican Chairs will stay in place, including pro-arts Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) as chair of the Interior Appropriations Subcommittee. 
● Seven Governor seats and 300+ state legislative chambers are changing hands from GOP to Democratic control, which will impact arts funding at the state level. 
●  95% of the pro-arts incumbents supported by The Arts Action Fund PAC won, and 50% of the challengers and open seat candidates supported won their races.
●  San Francisco Prop E ballot measure passed overwhelmingly (by 74%), directing millions of dollars in hotel tax revenue to support the nonprofit arts and culture in San Francisco. Additionally, pro-arts ballots in Tempe, AZ; Culver City, CA; and Tacoma, WA all passed.
This incoming group of new lawmakers in Congress—in state legislatures and in local city and county councils—will be among the most diverse electoral changes ever. This means there will be many new faces who need to know more about the value and impact of the arts and arts education. That provides arts advocates with an important opportunity to educate our lawmakers on the positive benefits and impacts of the arts in our lives, communities, and schools. 

Grantmakers in the Arts (GIA) reports that The Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) program, authorized under Title IV, Part-A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) established flexible formula grants to support: 1. well-rounded educational opportunities, which include the arts as defined by ESSA; 2. safe and healthy students; and 3. effective use of technology. 
With the recent passage and the President’s signing of the Fiscal Year (FY)2019 Defense/ Labor, HHS and Education bill, the Title IV program has received a $70 million increase, from $1.1 billion to $1.17 billion. This is on top of a $700 million or 175% increase the program received in FY2018, and shows Congress’ continued and increased support for the grant program. 
Title IV, Part A grant funds flow to states and are then distributed to Districts based on their student need (share of Title I formula). Within the SSAE program, districts may utilize funds within the “well-rounded education” bucket to develop and implement arts programs and activities, as well as improve access to the arts by working with a variety of partners, e.g. nonprofit organizations, community-based organizations, or other public/private entities with demonstrated records of success in implementing these activities. 
Seize this opportunity to leverage this increased funding available in the SSAE program by reaching out to your state department of education to see how you can help schools use these funds to augment an existing arts program or to start a new effort. New funds will flow into virtually every school district under this program and have not yet been obligated to be spent on a particular activity or need, and therefore represents a great opportunity to start or expand the use of these funds for the arts.
To learn more about how your State is using federal funds under ESSA to support arts education and programming and learn how you can engage, please visit GIA’s Guide on use of Federal Funds for Arts Education. To revisit GIA’s webinar on the SSAE program, including effective strategies to engage districts and engage in this work, click here.

Instagram is one of the best platforms for nonprofits to reach a socially conscious audience. While Facebook usage is steadily dropping, Instagram is staying strong with 1 billion monthly active users and 500 million daily active users. Plus, if you’re hoping to reach out to younger generations, it’s the platform to use: 59% of Millennials are active users, as are 80% of Generation Z. In a blog posting on Wild Apricot, How to Grow Your Nonprofit’s Instagram Following, Lilach Bullock, a social media and lead generation expert, outlines how to develop a strategy, define your objectives and your targeted audience. Developing a strategy is key in order to stand out among the plethora of Instagrammers fighting for people’s attention. As she says: "Being organized and strategic will ultimately help you save time and resources, as well as generate better results." One of the first priorities is to clearly define what your objectives are in an Instagram campaign, ideally establishing clear deadlines for specific goals. Then you can start measuring your success, understanding what you are doing right or wrong and thus improve your strategy as you go. She cites as an example if you wanted to raise awareness of your nonprofit, you might set an engagement objective, like a 20% increase in comments in 30 days. You can then track which kind of post gets the highest number of comments, and try to recreate it or iterate on it in order to continue the trend. Also important is to develop some audience personas to help you define who your audiences are, so you can create content that will resonate with your audience. Read Lillach's guide to successful instagramming here.
