Open Call for Board of Directors

Cultural Alliance of western Connecticut | december 10, 2021 

The Cultural Alliance is looking to build a team that is rich with a diversity of voices, backgrounds, and experiences who either live, work or have an interest in our service area. The towns we serve include Bethel, Brookfield, Bridgewater, Danbury, Newtown, New Fairfield, Redding, Ridgefield, and Sherman. Future members value and appreciate arts and culture as important contributors to quality of life and to the economy. Members of the board dedicate their support in a variety of ways, including a variety of expertise, financial backing, sweat equity, ideas — or a combination — to the Cultural Alliance’s mission: To grow the economy, inspire innovation and enrich people’s lives by empowering the professional arts and creative community. Being an artist or leader of an arts and cultural organization is not a requirement to be part of the team!

Since 2007, Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut has led the way to support a vibrant arts and culture community in the Greater Danbury area. We connect with artists, creative entrepreneurs, arts and cultural organizations and we provide support to them. We engage the public, businesses, and government leaders to advance the arts and integrate creativity in communities. We offer a variety of programs and services throughout the year with the extraordinary help of many volunteers. Our staff and board team are deeply committed to our mission to empower the arts community to grow the economy and enrich people’s lives.

The Cultural Alliance is committed to ensuring the equity and the diversity of voices represented in all policies, programs and initiatives and seek to foster an appreciation and understanding of the broad spectrum of individual differences cultural, racial, religious, socio-economic, or based on sexual identity, gender, physical, developmental or intellectual ability as well as a spirit of collegiality among those who participate in our activities and initiatives.
