The City of Reno Arts & Culture Commission (RACC) is the official advisor to the City of Reno City Council on all things arts and culture in the City of Reno. The RACC serves as the designated driver and facilitator of programs, policies and practices that support Reno's arts and cultural vibrancy.
The work of the RACC is anchored in the idea that arts and culture are created and consumed in a dynamic ecosystem within the community. Reno’s creative ecosystem is substantially more robust than comparable cities with a large number of nonprofit cultural organizations, small and large arts-related business, music, schools and universities and individual artists and creative workers of all types. Supporting all of these formal and structured creative entities are the thoughts of Reno citizens who attend and support arts activities throughout the City.
The RACC believes that ALL Reno citizens should be able to participate in a creative life.
