FACA is led by a group of individuals and representatives of organizations who are committed to
- assessing the needs and aspirations of the local artists and cultural groups
- promoting the local arts and cultural community and encouraging everyone to make arts and culture part of their daily lives
- exploring ways to help everyone engaged in arts & cultural activity achieve their goals.
FACA is led by the Steering Committee and has standing and ad hoc committees and working groups to work on specific tasks.
The Steering Committee is charting the course and leading the grassroots effort. They are working to bring representatives from throughout the community – artists, cultural groups, educators, business leaders, town government, students and others – into the discussion. At the same time, the group has been exploring the creation of an arts and culture center in Freeport, has initiated the creation of a new Virtual Kiosk to promote local arts and cultural activity and encourage conversation, and is taking steps toward developing a comprehensive cultural plan for Freeport.
The Steering Committee meets monthly — typically on the first Thursday of the month — to discuss and plan efforts to support and bring together the arts and cultural community. Minutes of these meetings are posted here after they have been approved at the next regular meeting.

InfoHub Working Group
The InfoHub Working Group was formed to work on various ways to get information to the public about what is happening in the local art and cultural scene, along with updates on FACA’s work and ways to get feedback from the community. The working group’s current plans include an online presence, press communication, and bulletin boards. The creation of the FACA Virtual Kiosk — this website, the FACA Facebook page and Twitter feed, and emailed news — is just the beginning. The InfoHub Working Group welcomes volunteers interested in helping with publicity and communication.
