Announcements

The RACC Announcement page consists of all entries which RACC posts on its website on a daily basis - including all artist opportunities like grants, jobs, calls to artists, etc. Other entries might include important media stories on the arts, advocacy alerts, or general news from the art community. These annoucements also appear at their proper menu sites. Send your notices to Mary Bauer at mbauer@racc.org.
