About SRAC


The Springfield Regional Arts Council (SRAC) connects people and the arts. We support some of the most prominent visual, performing, literary and film/media arts organizations within 27 counties, the largest outreach of any in the state of Missouri.

The SRAC has a 21-member board and has a full-time Executive Director, Programs/Exhibition Director, Marketing/Development Director, Office & Facility Manager, and a part-time Bookkeeper and Corporate Art Coordinator. In addition, there are several active volunteers who help with major events and projects. The SRAC has developed a solid internship program with local universities.

The SRAC's operations are funded through memberships, festival/event proceeds, grants, donations and a portion of the local hotel/motel tax.


SRAC's mission is to transform lives and enrich our community through the arts.


SRAC makes the arts a vital part of the community, which is a place where the arts are essential.
