This is accomplished through community collaborations and partnerships; providing rental space; organizing cultural, educational and health wellness programs; and curating art and historical exhibitions. The AARC leads with their values and vision, so that diverse communities are supported and connected. The AARC opened in 2013. In 2019, the building expansion plan was adopted. The 2019 Plan along with additional community input will guide the Phase 2 Improvement Project. Learn more on the AARC webpage.
