The mission of the Asian American Resource Center (AARC) is to provide public resources, collaborative and educational programming, and a cultural destination for Austin’s Asian and Asian American community. As the City of Austin’s newest cultural facility is housed within the Parks and Recreation Department, the AARC represents a long-awaited dream for many in the community, which was made possible through an Austin voter approved 2006 Bond Package with an investment from the U.S. Commerce
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
