We are committed to collaborating with local performing arts organizations and presenting opportunities for the creation of new work and the expansion of existing work in our venues (Altria Theater and Dominion Energy Center) as well as ensuring that our venues are seen as active community spaces that welcome audiences through both free and ticketed events.

From our arts-integrated early literacy program -Greater Richmond Wolf Trap - to our high school media literacy courses taught in the Digital Arts Lab, RPAA works directly with students, educators, and families to engage the community in meaningful ways that otherwise would not be available, specifically within under-resourced areas of the region.
