About: Fine Arts Council of Trumbull County
ABOUT THE FINE ARTS COUNCIL OF TRUMBULL COUNTY
The Fine Arts Council of Trumbull County (FACT) was established in 1971 when six community organizations recognized the need for mutual support & coordination of the arts and cultural organizations. Our mission is “to improve the quality of life in Trumbull County, by fostering the arts.”
FACT receives funding through corporate, foundation and individual donations.
FACT is always looking for volunteers and people willing to assist us in making the arts an integral part of everyday life in Trumbull County. If you’d like to carve pumpkins, greet people during our summer season or just help to spread the word, we can use your help. To volunteer, or for information about membership contact FACT at info@TrumbullArts.org
