The Creative Communities Alliance (CCA) is a coalition of municipal and nonprofit organizations dedicated to the development of community arts in the St. Louis region. As more communities cultivate quality art programs, the CCA provides a supportive network for these areas to come together, learn from each other, and promote the arts. This network is designed to support both artists and cities in each stage of artistic collaboration, especially those new to municipal arts partnerships. For communities that are just starting or do not have a strong presence in the arts, CCA helps them develop processes for working with artists and the arts in their communities. CCA also equips individual artists and arts groups with the knowledge and tools needed to work at the municipal and organizational level. We believe arts are a vital component of our community development and are committed to supporting an ever-growing network of artists and arts professionals in order to strengthen and promote arts across the region.
