Local studies have revealed that too many residents – including communities of color, immigrants and refugees, and people with disabilities – experience vast disparities in terms of access to publicly funded programs and services, including arts and culture. RACC and the City of Portland are committed to ensuring that all residents and diverse communities have equal access to publicly funded arts and culture programs.

Since 2010, RACC has been establishing new goals for reaching out to underserved populations and proactively providing RACC services in new communities. RACC is also working collaboratively with the arts organizations we fund to help identify strategies for increasing access to arts and culture in the City of Portland and throughout the region.
