Arts and Cultural Alliance of Freeport (ACAF, formerly Arts & Cultural Alliance of Freeport) was formed in June 2015 by a group of local artists and arts supporters. The group is committed to assessing the needs and aspirations of the local arts & cultural community and helping it reach its full potential.
A growing number of people are contributing to ACAF’s discussions and work. The ACAF steering committee included members of Freeport Players, Freeport Economic Development Corporation (FEDC) and Greater Freeport Community Chorus, as well as several local visual and performing artists, both professionals and amateurs. A number of other organizations and individuals have contributed to the discussions as well, including representatives of Freeport Historical Society, VisitFreeport, Greater Freeport Chamber of Commerce, Art Guild Of Freeport, MASISTA, Freeport Community Services, Freeport Community Programs, and Freeport High School drama department. Still more groups submitted letters of support and pledged to be community partners in the development of a cultural plan for Freeport. These include The Port Teen Center, Pine Tree Academy Band, Coastal Winds Community Band, and Freeport Community Library.
The Board of Directors continues to reach out to people engaged in arts and cultural activity in our community. Our aim is to include the full spectrum of artists and cultural groups in everything we do.
