We hope this finds you well among all the uncertainty and rapid changes of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. The Arts & Culture Collaborative is here to help you and provide resources and information as appropriate, especially to the arts community. ACC members may also visit our Member Forum through the Members Only portal.
A list of links to a variety of resources follows.
Please check back here regularly to see what our members are offering online to the public during this time of social distancing. For example, starting Monday, March 30th, our member Brass City Ballet will be offering online classes to their students.
If you are a member, let us know what you are doing! If you are wondering what a member is doing or have a suggestion, drop us a line!

Given the current situation with the Coronavirus and the increase in social distancing, many events of our Arts & Culture Collaborative members have been postponed or canceled. An extensive list is posted separately here on our website. Please note that listings and event photos on our site may not reflect the current cancellations.
Ironically, our ACC Spring 2020 Event Guide was recently produced and printed, covering events of our members from April through June. However, it was NOT distributed through the Republican-American newspaper as originally planned due to cancellations, postponements and social distancing. We will re-assess its distribution as circumstances evolve. In the meantime, in addition to checking here on the ACC website and calendar, please contact arts organizations or venues directly through their websites or by phone to see what they might be offering online or in the future.
Because of the hardship that the Coronavirus situation and environment puts on the arts industry, please consider a donation — when you can — to your favorite arts organization(s). Making a contribution online during the Give Local campaign through Connecticut Community Foundation on April 21-22, 2020, will help your gift go further with matching funds. Check back for more details as the time gets closer.
Thank you for your patience and understanding . . . and your ongoing interest in and support of the arts!
On Nov. 14, 2019, the Arts & Culture Collaborative hosted the dueling piano
sensation, “The Flying Ivories” at Vyne Restaurant & Bar in Middlebury.
It was a fun evening and a successful fundraiser.
Due to popular demand, we plan to bring the Flying Ivories back on
Nov. 12, 2020. So, mark your calendars and watch for more details.
In the meantime, you can re-live this past November’s event.
