The Arts & Culture Collaborative (ACC)
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. The ACC continues to grow and evolve as it promotes, connects, collaborates, and advocates for the arts.Member-based, the ACC serves individual artists and performers, arts and cultural venues and organizations of all sizes as well as their audiences in the greater Waterbury region and Naugatuck Valley. The towns and cities we serve include: Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Bethlehem, Cheshire, Derby, Middlebury, Naugatuck, Oxford, Prospect, Seymour, Southbury, Thomaston, Waterbury, Watertown, Wolcott and Woodbury.
