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:
Our accomplishments include:
The Rockaway Peninsula is in dire need of additional educational enhancement services for youth, as well as the creation of meaningful employment opportunities for them. The goal of RAA's cultural arts programs are to provide the youth in the community with constructive activities, as well as introducing them to career options, through comprehensive education in the arts, exposure to diverse cultures and histories, and to enhance academic, social and communication skills.
RAA presents approximately one dozen exhibitions each year in its two galleries, sTudio 6 and sTudio 7, at the Rockaway Center for the Arts (RoCA) at Fort Tilden in the Rockaways. In addition to showcasing well known individual artists and traveling exhibitions, RAA also highlights the best work of local artists as well as work from across the country and around the world.
RAA hosts exhibitions that explore the wide span of the arts and creative endeavor. Sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, filmmaking, performance art, digital art, construction, ceramics, poetry and literature are just some of the many areas presented. The performing arts in all their variety—music, dance, spoken word and more -are also featured through special RAA sponsored events and celebratory show openings, either within the galleries themselves or on the adjacent outdoor Moonstage. RAA facilities are ADA compliant and accessible to individuals with disabilities. Please call our office at 718-474-0861 for further details.
Year round the Rockaway Artists Alliance invites all to come and have a personal experience with the arts. Rockaway Artists Alliance, Inc. is dedicated to promoting the arts through diversity, education and public service.
