The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut based @287 Main Street, Danbury, Connecticut is a leader in supporting a vibrant arts and culture community in Northern Fairfield and Southern Litchfield Counties. We promote and advocate for arts, history, and culture as a primary driver of the economy and as an enriching influence for communities and people. We understand and believe that the arts sector is a critical engine for growth through creativity, innovation and collaboration. The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut, a 501c-3, is the only regional service organization in the Housatonic Valley region working to ensure better access and availability to arts and culture for all residents and visitors in the Greater Danbury area. We are supported by public funding, corporate and private contributions, and by our members. We market the region and bring together tens of thousands of people with ArtsWesternct.org and online services and with Venues and Settings in Western Connecticut print publications promoting 1000s of things to do each year. We encourage Place-Making. The Accessible Art Project provides over 25 exhibitions inside eight private/public venues in Greater Danbury. We now include storefront windows to present creative window installations. Currently, four property owners participate to promote economic development and bring life to downtown communities. We provide opportunities for exhibitions, meetings, workshops, think tank sessions and performances at our @287 Gallery and Meeting Place. Annually, more than 700 people have participated in our programs and services offered to the community.
