Richmond Performing Arts Alliance (RPAA) advances the performing arts in the Richmond Region through programs and resources that SUPPORT the artists of today, NURTURE the artists of tomorrow, and provide spaces for the arts to THRIVE.
Our vision is to create a vibrant community where the performing arts flourish and strengthen Richmond’s cultural, social, and economic vitality. Students, educators, and community members have equitable access to high-quality arts education and learning opportunities. Artists and arts organizations from all backgrounds have affordable and professional performance spaces and the capacity and resources to grow their programs and reach new audiences. And, patrons from all areas of the region see themselves reflected in the programs presented and enjoy diverse arts experiences in welcoming spaces, including our venues – Altria Theater and Dominion Energy Center.
