Welcome to The Richmond Area Arts Council

The Richmond Area Arts Council (RAAC) supports the cultural development of the city of Richmond, KY by advocating for and creating the highest quality artistic and educational opportunities for residents and visitors.  An active arts council within the community and region allows for business to flourish and provides a rich cultural environment for citizens.  

The Richmond Area Arts Council offers many arts activities for children and adults within our community.  The RAAC has partnered with the Madison County Schools to expand the Arts Education Program to provide safe and fun-filled class for hundreds of children to participate in after school and during the summer. The Richmond Area Arts Council also supports two established choral groups, the Madison Singers for adults and the Madison Children's Choir for grades 3-6. We also offer adult education classes and hosts art exhibits featuring local artists. The Richmond Area Arts Council is located within an historic Arts Center building, which is available as a facility rental for hosting events.  

The RAAC is growing to meet the increasing artistic needs of our community and region.  We encourage you to view our calendar of events and participate in the many activities that are taking place.   

The Richmond Area Arts Center is located at 399 West Water Street, Richmond, Kentucky.

Office Hours are 9:00AM - 5:00PM, Monday - Friday.  Phone: 859-624-4242
