About Us

Built on a vision of helping others, Rich Arts Collective (RAC) was founded in 2021 as a way of bringing music, art, and culture under one hub with the goal of raising up each member of the community in appreciation of our shared humanity.

We are excited to have you join us on this journey.

"When my grandfather told me to 'leave and not come back' what he meant was... by going out and pursuing my dreams I would have a chance of escaping the poverty, violence, and pain of living without knowing what tomorrow would bring. He wanted me to do better and have opportunities to experience my fullest potential."
