We support a cooperative environment that nurtures the artist and the observer while building a community around the arts that facilitates open dialogue, camaraderie, public service, education, mentorship and economic opportunities. FCAC maintains several core values, effectively guiding us in our mission – leadership, integrity, accessibility, vitality and collaboration.
