The Arts and Culture Collaborative of the Waterbury Region
The Arts & Culture Collaborative (ACC) was created to strengthen and support the arts in the Waterbury region as a central component of furthering economic and cultural development and to enhance the quality of life for area residents. Established in September 2006 under the auspices of the Greater Waterbury Chamber of Commerce Foundation (a non-profit entity), the ACC serves as a go-to resource for arts and culture. Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, the ACC continues to grow and evolve as it promotes, connects, collaborates, and advocates for the arts. It receives support and guidance from the Waterbury Regional Chamber, the CT Office of the Arts, the Connecticut Community Foundation and the arts community.
As a Regional Cultural Service Organization, the ACC works closely with the CT Office of the Arts, which is part of the state’s Department of Economic and Community Development. We are connected to a statewide network of similar organizations, which facilitates the sharing of information and opportunities in the arts.
