Why Arts Advocacy?

Because arts and culture are at the heart of communities and voicing support is important!

The Richmond Arts Coalition mandate includes advocacy for arts and culture to all levels of government. If you have an issue you wish addressed, please email us.

New Facility: The Richmond Arts Coalition continues to lobby for a new Performing and Visual Arts Centre. The current vision for the new venue has developed through discussions with various cultural groups.  Please follow this link to view the wish list developed from these discussions.

Funding: RAC participates with the Canadian Arts Coalition, the Alliance for Arts and Culture and PACT advocacy campaigns. It is important that there is one message being sent to the Federal Government. Canada Council for the Arts needs an additional 100 million in increased regular funding to support Canada’s cultural infrastructure.
