Our current programs:

The Generator is a network of creative individuals who live and work near the community of Ridgefield, Connecticut. Each month, artists, writers and performers gather with the goal of learning, sharing, and networking with others to enhance both their creative process and their careers. Meet Ups feature innovative speakers, arts demonstrations and presentations geared toward the creative community.

Our Artists, Our Schools is an initiative to facilitate partnerships between Ridgefield’s schools and our creative community. Projects include a directory of cultural educational resources available to enhance the curriculum, a logo-design unit with a graphic arts class and a ‘Careers in the Arts’ series of discussions with high school students and professional artists.

Executive Director Roundtable is a quarterly gathering of our community’s arts non-profit organizations to discuss schedules, challenges and opportunities for collaboration. It is through these discussions that we are able to understand the community’s needs, identify new projects for the Arts Council and gather information in order to advocate on behalf of our constituents.

The Behind the Scenes Honors is an annual ceremony to recognize the outstanding contribution of volunteers working ‘behind the scenes’ at our cultural institutions. These volunteers are vital to the success of our cultural community. This tradition provides an opportunity for the Arts Council and the Town of Ridgefield to officially recognize their selfless hard work and thank them for their dedication.
