Welcome to 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 RAAC 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 after school and during the summer.  The RAAC has two established choral groups, Madison Singers and Madison Youth Chorus, offers adult education classes and hosts art exhibits featuring local artist. We are located within the historic Arts Center building, which is available as a facility rental for hosting your own event.  

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