Community based collaborations and partnerships are just one of the many ways we support and connect with members of the greater Syracuse community and Central New York as well as area colleges and universities. Vibrant communities require accessible cultural resources. Community Folk Art Center was founded as a Center for “community folk.” Community-based arts organizations have long contributed to the revitalization of neighborhoods and CFAC continues that tradition through exhibits and programming that creates an open and welcome environment for community interaction and collaboration.

CFAC is a proud member of Syracuse University Coalition of Museum and Art Centers (CMAC) and Syracuse University Department of African American Studies.

Partnerships are another key aspect of our community relations. We thank our past and current partners, including The Links Inc., The Office of Program Development-Syracuse University, La Casita-Syracuse University College of Arts & Sciences, Syracuse Stage, LeMoyne College, Rosamond Gifford Zoo, Syracuse City School District, among many others. We look forward to collaborating with partners in the region on many projects that support our mission and purpose.
