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.

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.
