Additional Information Rockaway Artists Alliance, Inc. (RAA) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) arts organization comprised of individuals who view the arts as vital to the health of our community. Formed in 1994, it is our mission to encourage and engage residents of Rockaway, particularly our youth, in the arts and cultural activities. As a community based organization we provide:

• free lectures, presentations, exhibitions and special events open to the community at large

• mentoring of local youth in artistic endeavors to enhance and beautify the various neighborhoods of Rockaway in projects involving public spaces such as bus shelters, Parks Department lifeguard quarters, murals for NYC Housing Authority and NYC school buildings

• information to the community through a weekly local newspaper column of upcoming cultural events and activities Our accomplishments include:

• the successful implementation of a comprehensive school arts program within Rockaway's public schools. Funding sources which allow us to provide direct arts education courses to students, ages 5-20, include contracts with New York City's Department of Youth and Community Development and the Board of Education

• collaborative efforts with the administration of Gateway's National Recreational Area have led to RAA's utilization of two buildings located within this urban national park. Renovation of these buildings are currently underway to allow for the establishment of the first cultural arts center in the area.
