CCV collaborates with arts & cultural organizations large and small.

CCV values and seeks out partnerships with arts and cultural organizations large and small to promote, support, and showcase a community’s expressive cultural and traditional arts. Over the past year, CCV partnered with numerous festival presenters to produce both virtual and in-person events, including the National Council for the Traditional Arts, the North Carolina Folk Festival, and the Richmond Folk Festival. CCV has worked closely with the Virginia Folklife Program at Virginia Humanities on several digital projects in response to the pandemic.

In partnership with the Creative Alliance in Baltimore, Maryland, CCV created World Culture in Context, a remote cultural program for K-12 schools. This program has extended CCV’s network of partners, including Baltimore County Public Schools, the Barrier Islands Center and the Délégation générale du Québec à New York and Independent Schools.

These and other partnerships expand the impact of CCV’s work while supporting the important work of arts and culture organizations throughout the country and the world.
