The organization helps professional and aspiring artists in the Rochester region through public and private advocacy as well as through financial assistance (i.e., scholarships & grants).

RAA works to ensure that 1) that funding is ALWAYS available for the creation of new arts, arts education, and historic preservation of the arts in Rochester and 2) that forward-thinking artists are able to pursue ambitious works, especially those involving inter-arts collaboration.
