Rosemount Area Arts Council (RAAC)

The Rosemount Area Arts Council was founded in 2007 by four area residents who served on a 20 person task force appointed by the Rosemount City Council. The task force was asked to research and make a recommendation for possible reuses of the former St. Joseph’s Church.    The final recommendation was that the former church be re-dedicated as a community arts center. Just as the task force was making its final recommendations, the same four members concluded that arts in Rosemount was about more than just a building.  They determined that Rosemount needed an arts council that could spearhead action and programming. The Rosemount Area Arts Council (RAAC) was born!

RAAC is a 100% volunteer-run, financially independent organization. Unlike our counterparts in surrounding communities, we receive no monies from local government.
