US RAO – Regional Arts Organizations

The US Regional Arts Organizations (RAOs) have a deep connection to our regions, knowledge of our arts and culture ecosystems and organizations, and longstanding partnerships with State Arts Agencies, the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and other public and private funders and service organizations.

We are intermediaries and service providers, with track records of innovation, research, leadership, and responsiveness. Within our founding principles of increasing access to arts and creativity, we have a practice of working collaboratively within and outside our regions with an ever-growing commitment to equity and inclusion in our practices.
