Access to Arts and Culture

RACC-funded organizations are required to make their performances, exhibits and other programs available to the public, without discriminating on the basis of race, creed, religion, color, sex, marital status, political opinion, familial status, national origin, age, gender, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, military status, gender identity and source of income or disability status. All RACC-funded events must take place in venues that are fully accessible for people with disabilities.

In addition, arts organizations are using proceeds from the Arts Education & Access Fund to make their programs more affordable and accessible. Most arts organizations offer a number of free and reduced cost admission opportunities, and many participate in the “Arts for All” program, providing $5 tickets to low-income Oregonians who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance through the Oregon Trail Card.

Below is a summary of some of the free and reduced cost admission opportunities among local arts organizations. Restrictions on group size and other limitations due to COVID-19 have changed how organizations are connecting with visitors. Visit their websites for detailed information and how to connect:
