RACC Opportunity: IT Manager

The Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC) has one mission – to enrich our communities through arts and culture. We believe that the arts have the power to change hearts and minds, and to inspire social change. We also believe that arts and culture are key elements in creating desirable places to live, learn, work and visit.
We strive to cultivate equity in all of our programs. Prejudice and privilege have created barriers that RACC must dismantle, systematically and strategically, until everyone in our community has equitable access to arts and culture.
As a RACC team member, your work will help to educate and empower people from all walks of life by providing and promoting access to a diversity of art and cultural experiences. If you’re eager to make a difference, that’s a great start. To best serve our communities, we need commitment – to our mission, our goals and, most importantly, to the people we serve.
If you are ready to be part of a committed, collaborative team dedicated to our community, we want to talk to you.
